Overview

It is preschooler Lulu’s first time at the beach and she needs to conquer her fear of the ocean in this hardcover picture book from the New York Times bestselling Ladybug Girl series.
 
Lulu has never been to the beach but she knows she is going to love it…until she sees just how big and loud the ocean is. She and her dog Bingo decide that they will make sandcastles, fly kites, and get ice cream instead of swimming. But then the ocean waves snatch Lulu’s favorite pail. This is a job for Ladybug Girl! When Lulu is Ladybug Girl, she is brave and nothing can stop her from rescuing her pail – and suddenly she is in the ocean and it is fun!
 
This story is the perfect preparation for a first beach vacation, or to explore a new experience with a preschooler. Mama and Papa are never far away while Ladybug Girl builds up her courage and confronts something scary for the first time.
 
For fans of Fancy Nancy and Angelina Ballerina, the Ladybug Girl series honors courage, creativity, and a love of nature!

While Lulu is quite charming, this book was mostly uneventful. I might read this with my 3 year old daughter in preparation to go to the beach. I enjoyed looking at the simply illustrated pages, as they gives us a glimpse into what Lulu is feeling as she faces her fears.

Lulu and her faithful dog, Bingo, explore the beach for the first time and eventually Lulu overcomes her fear of the ocean.

My first IRA in a classroom was with the previous book in the series, Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy. This series by husband and wife writer-illustrating team follows a young girl, Ladybug Girl, and her trusty companion, Bingo the dog. Each book in the series addresses a character quality, fear, or problem that young children encounter. This time, a first trip to the beach brings about a fear of the big, vast ocean and its towering waves. The book sweetly follows the process of overcoming a fear, complete with the support of the protagonist's parents and older brother. The illustrations are pen and ink meets Manga and there are several creative usages of font, color etc in the text. A definite recommendation both within the classroom and for reading in the home.

We love this book! The pictures are darling and have that special classic quality to them, creating a world both familiar and curious.  The story is a good one...about being brave, about finding a part of yourself to call on when you know what must be done, and the delight in having mastered something challenging!

My daughter loves this and the other ones too. This she likes a lot because she likes the beach too. I could see a difference in her courage at the beach having had this book read to her. I recommend this book because it is a great beach story with pictures kids and adults can both smile at.

For anyone who has ever been afraid of the ocean, this book is a fun and gentle look at being brave and finding courage. The artwork is just stunning and there are interesting details to look at on every page. Ladybug Girl and Bingo are a dynamic duo!

My almost 3 year-old sat through having this book read to her the very first time and has enjoyed it each time ever since. We enjoy looking at the wonderful illustrations that show ocean waves and wet sand so well. The font size changes dramatically to help me know when to emphasize something important and I like that each time the words "Ladybug Girl" are printed it is always in red to help her learn to associate the printed word with the name of the girl. It is written at a level that she can relate to and she can continue to grow with it as she learns some of the bigger words. I was so impressed with this book that I bought all the other books in this series.

I think everyone remembers their first day ever at the beach. It can be awe-inspiring or just awesome. Ladybug Girl finds this out first-hand in this latest book in the series. Give Lulu some applause for standing up against the unknown fearlessly. Wishing you all cool breezes and warm water, because this book just puts you in a good mood.
