Girls can be superheroes, too! The New York Times Bestseller, Ladybug Girl is proof. Ladybug Girl was written and illustrated by David Soman and Jacky Davis and tells of Lulu and her faithful sidekick, Bingo.
Lulu’s brother doesn’t want to play with her because she’s just too little. She’s desperately bored and can’t find anything to do.
Bingo has accompanied her as she goes through her normal routine of counting the books on the shelf, watering and measuring her avocado plant, and finally heading outdoors.
Once outside, her superhero powers are called upon to assist a line of ants as they reach their destination (They couldn’t possibly have made it there without her help.). She also fearlessly jumps in a giant shark-infested puddle, repairs a stone wall, darts across a fallen tree trunk without falling, and then takes a graceful bow.
Her exhilarating exploits continue from there and she ultimately flies back home for lunch as Bingo races to keep up with her.
Ladybug Girl is the perfect book to include in your bug units and All About Me units. Lulu is approximately four-years-old and is already taking on her world. She is a great example to both your boys and your girls. The illustrations are whimsical and genuine all at the same time. Be sure to look for other books in the series.
I hope you enjoy this one as much as I have!
