My Thoughts:

I think this is a cute book. I bought it from her Scholastic Book Club a while ago because I know how much she loves ladybugs. We have read this book a few times now. And she loved it so much, I bought two other books from the series.

I feel that this is another good book for encouraging imagination. It also shows being independent. I like that Lulu is able to make her own fun. I think she is an interesting character.
This book also shows a sibling relationship where the older brother doesn't want Lulu tagging along with him because she is "too little". And I like how she is able to discover that she isn't "too little"  to do things. And she even discovers that playing baseball with her brother and his friends doesn't really look like fun after all.
I also like that this book doesn't focus only on the fact that she is a little girl and plays dress-up, but it also focuses on other things that she has fun doing: like saving ants, building a fort, jumping in puddles, etc. Not just stereotypical girly things.

I love how the Ladybug Girl text is red in the book. And I love the illustrations. They perfectly fit this book.

I recommend this book for little kids that like a sense of adventure.

I am glad that we own this book.
