What the Ladybug Heard by Julia Donaldson

What the Ladybug HeardThere are probably a million and one farm picture books in existence, and so it is really something to come up with a unique and clever new farm book. Well, this author has succeeded! In the story, crafty robbers have a plan to steal the prize cow and the only one who hears their plan is the little ladybug who never says a word. She bravely utters her first words “Help!” and then “gather round” and foils the bad guys’ plan by coming up with her own clever plan. Of course, the rest of the animals play along, and the prize cow is saved! The rhyming text and fun illustrations make for a wonderful read-aloud! Very fun!

    Three cheers! I totally agree. This was one of my favorite books of 2010. Every time I’ve shared in with children it’s been a hit. AND what a joy to read aloud.
