LUCKY LADYBUGS by Gladys Conklin


Email this review


Ladybugs are lucky because ""birds do not like the taste of them; people like to have them in their gardens; there is always plenty of food for them to eat."" Ladybugs are lucky also in the books about them, first Judy Hawes' more scientifically precise Lady, Ladybug, Fly Away Home (1967, ) now a Gladys Conklin-Glen Rounds collaboration that shows and tells what a kindergartner can understand: life cycle, eating and grooming habits, winter migration and hibernation (and how people collect them and keep them in cold storage for spring sale). The text has an easy rhythm for reading aloud, the drawings are a delight.
