Children's LiteratureI am about the size of a pea with spots all over me; my hard wings cover my flying wings . . . what am I? In Hall's book, we find out what ladybugs are, how they look, and what they do, just as the table of contents promises. Geared to early readers, images support the text, and repetition gently helps readers learn new words. Shorter than this review, the book's word count totals 98. Close up, full color photographs bring those charming stubby-legged, spotted-bodied, aphid-eating "ladies" up close and personal. Twenty-four pages in length, this book includes a table of contents, an index, book and website references, and a glossary. The web reference is Capstone Press's own www.facthound.com—a "safe, fun way to find" related Internet sites. A note at the beginning of the book informs us that this series "supports national science standards related to the diversity of life and heredity." Other titles in the "Bugs, Bugs, Bugs!" series include Ants, Crickets, Grasshoppers, Praying Mantises, and Spiders. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 7.
