I Love Lady Bugs was written by Meaghan Fisher and illustrated by Middy Mathieu. This book was inspired by Emma Rose, the author’s young daughter. Emma Rose loves lady bugs and searches for them in her house and on her toys. I Love Lady Bugs is about 19 pages long and allows the young reader to follow Emma Rose in her search for lady bugs. She finds them on the kitchen wall, on the window and on the back of her chair. She finds them in her backyard, on her sock as she is sliding down the slide and in her garden. Emma Rose doesn’t mind finding lady bugs because she loves them.
I Love Lady Bugs is an adorable book for toddlers, preschoolers and beginning readers. The illustrations are exquisite. The colors are bright and attractive; they are sure to hold a child’s attention. They add depth to the text. The text is simple and easy to understand. I was surprised that the author did not create text with a rhythmic structure. However, this does not detract from one's reading enjoyment. I can see many teaching opportunities that go along with this book. A parent could have the child count the lady bugs or the parent could ask the child questions as to where the lady bug was found. This book could also be used to assist a child that has a fear of bugs. What better way to help a child overcome this fear than with a book about a child that loves a bug. Meaghan Fisher is a talented author specializing in children’s books.
