Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In this pop up version of the popular story book of the same name, the brilliantly colored red and black lady bug who likes to sleep all day and does not know how to fly is resting on a bright red flower with a yellow center and thinking she would like to sleep somewhere new. First she jumps into the pocket of a kangaroo that is hopping by, but the kangaroo liked jumping so the ladybug couldn't sleep there. It was too bouncy. The lion's back was not suitable because the lion's roar was too noisy. And so on, until she hopped onto the tip end of the elephant's trunk, making him sneeze, shooting the ladybug into the air, and the very lazy ladybug learns how to fly! The pop ups are simple and sturdy with actions that are appropriate for the story. 2003, Tiger Tales, Ages 2 to 5.
—Eleanor Heldrich
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-The ladybug of the title is so lethargic that she doesn't even know how to fly. She decides to look for a new sleeping spot, and, since her mobility is restricted, she latches on to a number of passing animals. As she soon finds out, a kangaroo is too bouncy, a monkey's incessant swinging makes her dizzy, and a tiger's roaring makes it too noisy to sleep. Finally, she thinks she's found the perfect spot-on the trunk of an elephant. However, the elephant sneezes and the ladybug is launched into the air and has to fly at last. The illustrations are done in bold, eye-catching colors, and the animals are very simply drawn and easily recognizable. The variety in the type reflects the action and movement of the animals. Children will enjoy acting out the tale as the ladybug looks for a quiet place to sleep. A natural for storytime.-Sheilah Kosco, Rapides Parish Library, Alexandria, LA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

This is great book to read to younger children. My one year old loves to help spot the ladybug on different pages and act out the sounds and movement of each animal. Definitely a favorite!!
