Discover the Ladybug Girl Book Series

By Bianca Schulze, The Children’s Book Review
Published: August 8, 2011

Hooray for an idealistic, empowering girl series that moves away from the stereotypical pink and brightens bookshelves everywhere with its red and sparkly illustrations. Ladybug Girl, by Jacky Davis and David Soman, has lots of personality and is the perfect series for girls who enjoy dressing up, the great outdoors, or have brothers.

Series overview: Ladybug Girl is Lulu, a little girl who loves to dress up in her ladybug costume and use her imagination to turn every moment into an adventure.

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.
