Picture Book Review: Look Out Ladybug by Jack Tickle

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!
