Praise For Ladybug Girl and the Big Snow

Praise for Ladybug Girl and the Big Snow:

“The story incorporates creative, dramatic ideas into Lulu’s outdoor play that will appeal to young children’s imaginations. A fine choice for young readers on a cold winter night, especially when enjoyed with a cup of hot chocolate in front of a fire like the one Ladybug Girl, Bingo and her brother curl up in front of.”—Kirkus

“Highlight[s] the value of perseverance as setbacks threaten to dampen Lulu’s spirits (and clothing)…Should have fans watching the skies for first snowflakes.” —PW

“The characters leap from spread to spread, and the text has amazing exuberance. Crisp and clean watercolor and line illustrations feature numerous chucklesome aspects…. The images exemplify what the words need not explain–with just a little imagination the average snowflake can transform the familiar into a world full of wonder.”—School Library Journal
