third story(ies)
We started off with several of the Ladybug Girl board books – they are shorter books with less words, and the illustrations and themes are lifted from the longer storybooks. The first full length book we owned was “Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy”. After that one, she was hooked.

Our latest acquisition is “Ladybug Girl and the Big Snow”. I’ve always been a sucker for a good snow book – I love the shadows and all the colors found in snow, and I found the illustrations in this book to be really well done. (Much better than the cover illustration that looks more cartoon like than the actual story inside.) I also like the focus on Lulu and her older brother’s relationship in this story.

I would recommend this book for all the spunky girls in your life. Four is the sweet spot, for sure, but even kids a little older or a little younger will appreciate Lulu’s – ahem, Ladybug Girl’s – adventures.

Find these titles at your favorite local independent bookstore. Happy reading!
