Reading Level: Picture Books, ages 0-4
Maturity Level: 1 (ages 0-4)
Young children will love playing hide-and-seek with Ladybug who hides in familiar locations: the bathtub, the stairs, and the toy room. Like a little child, Ladybug tends to hide with part of her sticking out so she is easy to find. If you pause just a moment before reading the refrain (“Yoo-hoo, Ladybug, where are you?”), the child will quickly learn to jump in.
The brightly colored digital collage illustrations add uniqueness to the game. It’s a fun book, likely to become a favorite.
