Davis, Jacky Ladybug Girl and the Best Ever Playdate Illustrated by David Soman Dial Books, 2015. $17.99 PICTURE BOOK Content: G.
Lulu is excited to have her friend Finny come to play because she wants to play with Finny’s new toy a Rolly-Roo. When Lulu picks playing with the Rolly-Roo over Finny it hurts Finny’s feelings. When Lulu realizes her mistake she tells Finny sorry and they have fun together doing what Finny wants.
The illustrations in this book are adorable, especially Lulu’s basset hound. The message is a good one about friendship and respecting other people’s feelings. The bright red outfit Lulu wears makes her look like a ladybug and will appeal to little girl readers.
