Ladybug Girl Book series (Giveaway)

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to commentor #14: Kristie!

I’ve been conscientiously trying to read to the kids during the summer to keep up their reading skills learnt throughout their last academic year.  We’ve gone through a lot of books and its time for new ones.


Penguin Book’s two latest releases from the New York Times bestselling Ladybug Girl series, Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad & Ladybug Girl at the Beach.


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.


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.


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.


The ladybug girl at the beach was a nice reminder of our own trips to the beach.  My daughter was pretty scared of the roaring ocean last year and this year she can’t get enough of it so the book was enlightening as it showed my daughter how brave and big she is.   The ladybug girl and the bug squad is a fun book for both my daughter and son.  Both are playful children but sometimes they can be a little over zealous in their action.  So any book that teaches them proper manners with friends is a good book.  We’ve already read through these books twice and I’m sure these books will be chosen over and over again this summer.
