Busy Little LadybugNew
Follow the adventures of a busy little ladybug flying about its day! This interactive, ladybug-shaped board book features a googly eye on the cover, a soft, shimmery ladybug wing, and even handles for little ones to grab onto!
What I loved: The shape of the book is cute, as it looks like a ladybug with a convenient handle for easy carrying. The touchable wing and wiggly eye add to the fun of the book, making it almost a toy. The inside illustrations are fun with a focus on the colors that ladybug wears, helping to introduce these colors to little ones. The story is simple and short, which will appeal to the youngest readers.
What left me wanting more: As a small point, the reliance of ladybug on her friends' opinions, and their negativity about the other colors she tries on are a message I am not sure about. For this age group, I would have appreciated more support from the friends and/or an internal decision about colors of flowers for wearing.
Final verdict: A cute book for little ones to carry, BUSY LITTLE LADYBUG helps teach colors in a simple story.
