Book Review- Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad

Illustrated by David Soman
Source- Bought
Ages 4+
5 stars

In their first official playdate, Lulu (a.k.a. Ladybug Girl) and her Bug Squad buddies demonstrate their "superpowers," which include cartwheels, running fast, and saving ants. All seems to be going well until Ladybug Girl's super enthusiasm begins to grate on the group. A gentle lesson about playing together (quoted from Goodreads).

This is my first time reading the Ladybug Girl series and what a wonderful book this is! Not only did my little girl fall in love with the story and Ladybug Girl, but I enjoyed reading the story to her. The story is fun, the illustrations are great and the message the story delivers is one younger kids can not only relate to, but identify with. I'm looking forward to reading more books from this series and I highly recommend picking it up!


  1. My students love Lady Bug girl and I was very happy to see that Davis had written one about playing together (something we're always teaching in elementary school).

  2. I loved the interaction w/ the kids in this story! It's fabulous!

  3. My toddler really loves this one, too! The illustrations have just the right balance between whimsy and realism. The costumes the children wear are pure joy!

  4. Sheela- I have totally fallen in love with this series. My little girl talks about it all the time. I need to get her more books in the series.


I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
