Publishers Weekly Review
In her latest outing, Lulu, clothed as always in her Ladybug Girl attire, "flies around the farmer's market, pointing to the colorful fruits and vegetables. "All the colors make a rainbow!" she says. Another sight at the market that interests Lulu-and Bingo, her steadfast basset hound-is that of dogs waiting under a sign that says "Adopt a Dog." Lulu wants to adopt all of the dogs, which range from a small dachshund to a big, shaggy sheepdog, and in an especially gleeful scene, Davis shows what it might look like if eight additional dogs lived in her house. Lulu decides it is a bit much, and her mother tells her that "one dog is the right amount for our family." When the rest of the "Bug Squad" (Grasshopper Girl and Bumblebee Boy) shows up, the three are determined to help in other ways: they play with the dogs, fill their bowls, and introduce them to prospective adopters. Soman and Davis deliver another Ladybug Girl adventure with heartwarming authenticity. Ages 3-5. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
Library Journal Review
PreS-Gr 2-The latest installment of the series has a great message that no matter how small one is, they can make a difference. While visiting a farmer's market in their town, Ladybug Girl notices some cute dogs from an animal shelter. When her parents explain that these dogs are looking for forever homes, Ladybug Girl decides that she and her friends need to help. They spend time caring for the animals and orchestrate a parade through the market. In the end, they match a family with a big happy dog, further adding to the warm feelings that this story provides. With its feel-good message and young characters, this will be a favorite among young patrons. The vibrant illustrations amp up the cuteness factor. VERDICT A great addition for any primary school or public library, especially where this series is popular.-Jasmine L. Precopio, Fox Chapel Area School District, Pittsburgh © Copyright 2018.
