School Library JournalPreS-Gr 2-This is an informative study in a whimsical, colorfully illustrated package filled with close-ups. Written in rhyming text, the description of the life cycle of ladybugs begins with fully developed insects-"Little round beetles with red coats and black spots crawl through gardens and trees, and on flowers in pots"-and progresses through a lilting study of behavior, birth, and development. Three pages of additional facts with spot illustrations of several varieties of these gardeners' friends follow. A fun, cheery addition for early reader science collections.-Cynthia M.
