This cheery pet adoption tale shows Ladybug Girl learning that helping in lots of small ways can add up to a contribution that "really mattered." Ladybug Girl and the Rescue Dogs may raise awareness of the rescue dog option for families seeking a pet. And it's also a gentle lesson in humility (as many Ladybug stories are), as Lulu learns she can't always "save the day" completely, but she can do positive things that help in a meaningful way. It's another fun adventure in this top-notch picture book series.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
