6. The “Ladybug Girl” is a book about staying true to yourself. The story unfolds a young girl who doesn’t know if she should dress up as her original costume, a ladybug, or to wear a different costume. I like this book for a few reasons. The book’s overall setting takes place during fall in which each part of the story illustrates fall leaves, Halloween costumes, bundling up, crisp autumn days, pumpkins, scarecrows, and cornstalks. The warm colors gives a cool fall touch as you read through the pages. I like how the author uses the tall dark corn stalks to portray the main character, Lulu, as the heroic symbol of the story. For instance, three quarters into the story, after not finding the perfect costume to wear, Lulu helps a lost young girl find her way to her parents through the cornstalks. Lulu had her ladybug costume on underneath which in the end of the story connected her to being her true self as a heroic character. Also, I enjoyed how the writing all through the story teaches readers something about the season fall. This chapter book is extremely educational. When Lulu had to go to the orchard with her family, the book presents an illustration of Lulu bundling up and reads, “Everyone has to bundle up to keep warm against the crisp autumn day.” In addition, the language is authentic and descriptive. There are sentences with detailed words, such as “dried leaves and hay crunch under her feet.” The language and writing ties the book together to create the event as believable and realistic. This helps with showing how the big idea of staying true to yourself is important. ( )

Cute and sweet book, I'd like to have some of these in my classroom. There are other books of ladybug girl that would be nice to have a collection of for the students to get hooked on and maybe identify with (younger girls-- like the junie B.)
