I liked the structure, illustration, and creative die-cut pages. Each plot point has a small analog clock face, a nice addition for early readers who want to practice time-telling. I didn't love that the point seems to be, if you are grouchy, someone will slap you. Or conversely, if someone is grouchy with you, slap them; they will automatically turn contrite and humble. But your (or your kid's) mileage may vary!
My little one loves this book. I don't so much love that the ladybug wants to fight everyone, so I changed the word to "wrestle"... :) It's a pretty tedious one to read though.
In Eric Carle's iconic picture book, a grouchy ladybug challenges everyone she meets to a fight until finally she learns an important lesson about bullying and sharing. Ages 0-6.
The illustrations and the pages and text make Eric Carle's books so interesting. The repetitiveness of it makes it fun for the kids to follow along.
I love the use of transparent overlays in Eric Carle's picture books. It adds a new depth to the story and allows for great interactions! A little repetitive but it gets children reading along!
