Ladybug wants to fly, but she’s just not very good at it. Nonetheless, she practices and practices. Soon, though, her practice gets her into all sorts of tricky situations — like onto a trumpeting elephants trunk and tickling a tiger’s tummy. Luckily, all the animals she meets are as charmed by her as we are, and they give her a helping hand
The text is this book is sparse enough to let it serve as a read aloud for toddlers, and the bright, colorful pictures would also serve groups well. My only qualms are that I don’t typically think of ladybugs as jungle animals (as all the other animals are), nor do brown bears live in the jungle. But if you can get past those minor quasi-scientific pumps, then this book will be great for toddler or even preschool storytimes about learning, locomotion, bugs, or safari animals!
