There's A Book

The Ladybug Girl series by Jacky Davis and Illustrated by David Sonman is one I’ve long been a fan of. It’s all about a little girl who loves to dress up in her ladybug costume and use her imagination in whatever way she can think of. Not only do I love the premise for the series, but the story behind it…

From the Ladybug Girl site:
One day, when Jacky and David were sitting in their living room and blearily having their morning coffee, their two year old daughter, Lucy (who had been up for hours) cheerily bounced into the room dressed in her rain boots, a tutu, and ladybug wings; Ladybug Girl was born. Together Jacky and David write the stories (Lucy helps) and then David goes off to his studio on a hill to draw the pictures. When their second child Sam noticed all the drawings of his “sister” hanging on the wall, he wondered where the drawings of him were. Thinking (and drawing) very fast, Bumblebee Boy came into the world.

Isn’t that adorable?! Anyone who’s ever been around children knows they carry with them this undeniable spirit for adventure, life and all things that seem completely impossible to us adults. What’s enjoyable about the series is that Ladybug Girl, though she always manages to learn a lesson or two, never loses that spirit. It’s a wonderful series and I’ll be reviewing both Ladybug Girl at the Beach and Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad over the next two days. So don’t worry, this isn’t the last you’ve heard of them! Until then I have a great giveaway…


Thanks to the publishers, Dial Books for Young Readers, I have the wonderful opportunity of providing a giveaway to There’s A Book readers! Thank you! Two (2) winners will be selected to win one copy of each of the following books:

Ladybug Girl at the Beach

Lulu loves the beach. Well, she’s never been there before, but she knows she will love it. And then she sees the ocean and it is big and loud and rough. That’s okay – Lulu wanted to build sand castles and fly her kite with Bingo anyway. But while they are building their sand castle, the sneaky ocean comes in and tries to steal Lulu’s favorite pail. This is a job for Ladybug Girl!
Lulu conquers her fear of the ocean when she remembers that Ladybug Girl can do anything, in this gorgeously illustrated companion to the popular series.

Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad

Lulu is so excited for the Bug Squad to come over for a playdate, and she has all kinds of things planned for them to do – right down to eating cupcakes. The cupcakes are special because each one has a candle that Lulu thinks everyone should blow out at exactly the same time.
But when things don’t go just the way Lulu planned, feelings are hurt and apologies are necessary. Sounds like a job for Ladybug Girl, who knows how to be brave and say she’s sorry, even when it isn’t easy.

  3. I’m going to have to try reading this one again to my daughter. She wasn’t that into it when we tried it last year. Maybe she was too young then.
