Ladybug Girl by David Soman and Jacky Davis - review
Ladybug Girl by David Soman and Jacky Davis
Well, I'm just in love with Ladybug Girl. She's about four, I'd say, too little to play baseball with her big brother, and too little to read. She could easily be any of my friends' little daughters. Left to her own devices for the morning, she at first declares that there's nothing to do, but then travels through the back yard with her faithful dog Bingo, rescuing ants, building a fort, braving the shark that probably lives in the big puddle.
I feel like you can never have enough make-your-own-fun books, and you certainly can never have too many books illustrated as winningly as Ladybug Girl.
Endpaper bonus: Lulu in a variety of costumes and poses, from astronaut to unicorn.
