Ladybug! Ladybug! was such a fun book to read with my nieces and nephews. They just loved all the little ladybugs and other little characters. I personally love how it is an interactive book with fun little teaching rhymes. They are already asking about the next book, and I can't wait to read it with them.
I really loved it! It was such a joy to read this with my kids, they really liked all the little poems and I especially liked the ladybug song. I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of the series!
What a wonderful children's book with poems that will fill your heart with delight and wonder! Kids will love this. The illustrations are PERFECT, adding that touch of magic to the book as a whole!
This is an adorable children's poetry book. It's so good my son continues to ask me to read it every night before bed. The poetry is sweet, telling of lovely ladybug adventures with incredibly adorable (and well drawn) illustrations accompanying it. This looks like a series. If so, I can't wait for the future books!
