My Lil’ Ladybug
Sometimes things happen to odd reasons and we begin to see nature’s blessings in a different way. Imagine a mystical moment that changes a young child’s perspective about a beautiful bug . Seeing the small black dots on this red bug startled Brooke. Just look at her face in the illustration on the swing. Calling for mom to come and see what was there you can tell from the next illustration you see her fear. But mom is calm and explains it’s a sweet ladybug. Her mom shows her how she gently holds the ladybug on her own finger and you see this dot wobble over her white knuckle. Relaxing and wanting to see how it felt Brooke has it on her finger too and you can see the amazing smile on her face. Counting the spots she learns there are 7 dark spots and then they allowed it to fly away but not before making a wish .
Brooke fell asleep but was thinking about her new friend. The author keeps us snd Brooke in suspense because we hope our ladybug will come back again. But will it?
Searching the garden and checking the grass and looked at each blade carefully. Trying the shed and then taking a break under a tree. Mom said it’s time to eat.
Brooke really lives the ladybug and would not stop until she saw her friend again. Maybe she’ll see even more with the ladybug’s friends. But you have to know it needs it’s freedom to fly and live . So no one can harm this book or its friends.
Brooke thought she knew where to search for her Lil’ Ladybug. Is the spot in plain sight? Careful not to trip again and exploring the garden outside. Told in rhyme by Brooke and the colorful illustrations that make it all come alive, once again author TobyA. Williams takes readers of every age along on Brooke’s latest adventure. Hoping to find the ladybug and making sure it would not flinch would another miracle happen? Will she see her friend again? You won’t believe the sight she sees and where. Will she keep her friend if she finds it? Will she let it fly free? One way to find out is by reading the poem and going on the he adventure with Brooke and her mom.
The author includes factoids about ladybugs for educators and parents to use as a follow activity after reading the book. Non readers can follow with the illustrations by Corrina Holyoake. Let’s hope Brooke has more adventures to share with us .
