Ladybug Girl Loves...
Jacky Davis, illus. by David Soman, Grosset & Dunlap, $5.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-448-45374-3
In this board book spinoff of Soman and Davis's bestselling picture book series, Ladybug Girl (aka Lulu) shares her favorite activities. Along with her steadfast basset hound, Bingo, Ladybug Girl "splashes though huge puddles," goes on a car trip with her family ("She always tries to guess where the car will take her next"), races waves at the beach, and plays with other members of the wing-clad "Bug Squad." Fans will recognize some moments from the other books, but this outing still gives the high-spirited heroine another chance to shine. Ages 3–5. (Dec.)
