Kids say: Not yet rated

The Ladybug Girl books, including LADYBUG GIRL AT THE BEACH, are a rare treat in children's fare. With relatable tales and vivid watercolor-and-ink illustrations, they celebrate nature and curiosity, both encouraging the magical thinking of the age and addressing real-world concerns and fears.

Kids, especially those who are already fans, will love following Lulu on her first beach outing. Parents will appreciate the book's unusually delicate, believable treatment of facing your fears -- no blind rushing in, no unlikely sudden courage, but rather the idea that kids are smart and self-aware enough to set their own pace when it comes to trying new things, and often know exactly the right time to jump in.

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.
