Review By JESSICA ALMY
Wife-and-husband team Jacky Davis and David Soman have collaborated on a delightful book that follows preschool-aged Lulu through a morning when she must entertain herself. Proclaiming herself Ladybug Girl and flanked by her loyal dog Bingo, Lulu discovers that she’s fearless and powerful. She skips through a “lake” that may or may not have sharks beneath its surface and rescues ants from having to climb over a rock.
This lovely book is priceless not only for its portrayal of a young girl but also for its depiction of a child in harmony with nature and her animal companion. And it’s a book parents and kids alike will enjoy reading and rereading.
Ages 3 to 7.
