His love of nature and the animal kingdom inspired him to write and illustrate I Spy With My Little Eye, Little Bee, and Little Acorn Grows Up.
  • Praise for Little Acorn Grows Up:

    * "[A] charming exploration of color...Gibbs's lightly caricatured and exuberantly inked animals have personality to spare as the book moves steadily toward its comforting conclusion."

    (Publishers Weekly  (starred review)).

  • "Gibbs's charming book benefits from his use of varied media." (New York Times).

  • Praise for I Spy with My Little Eye:

    * "Defined by joyful scribbled outlines, the exuberant, friendly animal portraits dazzle."
    (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

  • * "An ingenious use of die-cut technology to complement the fun of such favorites as Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle's Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" (Kirkus, starred review).

  • * "This clever book combines color recognition, die-cut peek-a-boo holes, animals, and a guessing game into a successful and appealing whole that will have young listeners asking for more." ( School Library Journal, starred review).
