Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is preschooler Lulus first time at the beach and she needs to conquer her fear of the ocean in this hardcover picture book from the New York Times bestselling Ladybug Girl series.

 

Lulu has never been to the beach but she knows she is going to love it…until she sees just how big and loud the ocean is. She and her dog Bingo decide that they will make sandcastles, fly kites, and get ice cream instead of swimming. But then the ocean waves snatch Lulus favorite pail. This is a job for Ladybug Girl! When Lulu is Ladybug Girl, she is brave and nothing can stop her from rescuing her pail – and suddenly she is in the ocean and it is fun!

 

This story is the perfect preparation for a first beach vacation, or to explore a new experience with a preschooler. Mama and Papa are never far away while Ladybug Girl builds up her courage and confronts something scary for the first time.

 

For fans of Fancy Nancy and Angelina Ballerina, the Ladybug Girl series honors courage, creativity, and a love of nature!

 

Review:

"Even though Lulu--in full ladybug bathing suit regalia--has never been to the beach, she knows that she's going to love it. But at the edge of the water, where she's dwarfed by a curling wave that spills over an entire spread, she isn't so sure about going in. Luckily, there are other things to do, like building sand castles and getting ice cream on the boardwalk. Davis's warmly expressive illustrations capture Lulu's trepidation and, in the end, her triumphant self-assurance: when her bucket gets drawn in with the tide, Ladybug Girl finally has to confront the ocean. A tender addition to the series. Ages 3 — 5. (May)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Lulu conquers her fear of the ocean when she remembers that Ladybug Girl can do anything, in this gorgeously illustrated companion to the popular "New York Times"-bestselling series. Full color.

Synopsis:

A mother and daughter spend a sunny day at the beach together where they swim, dance, build sandcastles, and, most importantly, communicate. But their communication is not spoken; rather, it is created by loving hands that use American Sign Language.

Readers will learn how to sign 15 words using American Sign Language with the help of sidebars that are both instructive and playful. And the beautifully illustrated beach scenes will appeal both to the deaf community and to hearing parents and children, who will enjoy this gentle introduction to some basic words in ASL. Hands and Hearts is a picture book unlike any other, revealing the special bond between mother and child.

Praise for Hands and Hearts

andquot;A memorable excursion.andquot;

--Kirkus Reviews

andquot;The book is recommended for libraries with an interest in ASL, and those in need of beach-themed picture books for the mommy-and-me crowd.andquot;
