They use their big imaginations to create their own fun games right in Lulus backyard. But when some things dont go just the way Lulu planned, Dragonfly Girls feelings get hurt. This is a job for Ladybug Girl! When Lulu is Ladybug Girl, she knows that even if it isnt easy, it is important to apologize.
For fans of Fancy Nancy and Betty Bunny, the Ladybug Girl series honors individuality, friendship, and a love of nature!
"It's the 'first official Bug Squad playdate,' and Lulu wants everything to go as planned. At the appointed Bug Squad base, the squad members (with basset hound Bingo in tow) demonstrate their powers: Dragonfly Girl can breathe fire (twirling a boa), Bumblebee Boy is as 'fast as lightning,' Butterfly Girl has smarts, and Ladybug Girl can fly, is super-strong, saves ants, and does cartwheels. But there's tension in the group when Ladybug Girl's exuberance comes across as bossiness. Soman and Davis sensitively convey the joys of creative play and the delicacies of children's social dynamics. Ages 3 5. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
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.
