A lovely science picture book on the life of the ladybug. Very short text with spurts of voice. Good kicking-off book for additional research into insects. Strong lead-in information page. Illustrations are done from the bugs eye view as well, getting the reader close to the action! It's easy to forget the pictures are drawings.

You know, when I read Are You are Ladybug, which I read just prior to this, I didn't think the subject could get any simpler...and I was wrong. This book is, in fact even simpler. It contains much the same information, starting out with a paragraph (on the back of the title page) about the Two-Spotted Lady Bug Beetle, which you can read (I think it's aimed at parents) and from there each page contains one very simple sentence and is accompanied by one very large (but deliciously colorful) illustration. What this book lacks that Are You a Ladybug had was a slightly more complex look at the metamorphosis that the Ladybug Larvae go through (i.e. that they split out of their skin multiple times before finally morphing into the from we are most familiar with). It does take the reader (or listener) through the entire lifecycle of the ladybug and even goes into some of the dangers they face in navigating through the world, but never fear parents of very young children, all ends well in this story. Overall I give it 4 stars, this is strictly for very young children (ages 2-5) who are curious about those flying red bugs they see outside in the spring. A good starter book for kids and a nice breakaway from reading story books for parents who are reading aloud to their small children several times a day.
