Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy

book coverLadybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy by David Soman and Jacky Davis Lulu is dressed as Ladybug Girl (see last year’s book by that title) and ready to try out her superpowers at the park. When she gets there, she finds her friend Sam – but they can’t find anything they both want to play. Finally, Lulu decides to tell him about Ladybug Girl. Success! Sam decides to be Bumblebee Boy, and soon they are having such fun saving the playground from giant monsters that other children ask to join them. The premise might seem simple, but this book is pure genius. How many times now have I seen LB and his friends come to blows because they can’t agree on what to play? Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy manages to teach a valuable lesson in compromise and negotiation – no adults needed – while remaining a story of imaginative adventure that is instantly appealing. Expressive and vibrant watercolors illustrate. I’m planning on getting this for our own personal library, a rarity in our world of loving a book for a week or two and then returning it and moving on.
