Ladybug Girl asks her mom if the dogs can come live with them. But her mom says that having eight dogs would upset Bingo. Wanting to help, Ladybug Girl decides to call upon her faithful Bug Squad! Will the gang be able to find homes for the dogs?
I absolutely love this book! Being an avid animal lover and proud fur mom to five rescue dogs, this story truly touches my heart. My husband never wants me to go into an animal shelter because he knows that I want to take them all home. Ladybug Girl and I definitely share a passion for animals!
I also love how Ladybug Girl looks for ways to help even after her mom tells her she can't adopt the eight dogs. Many children would not be mature enough to get passed the "no" and seek to find another solution other than adoption. Not only is Ladybug Girl resourceful, but she is also not afraid to ask for help from her friends.
Soman's illustrations are gorgeous! Each dog has a very distinct personality that can easily be seen in their facial expressions. My favorite is Daisy the Dachshund. She acts just like my doxie, Hope! Children will definitely be drawn to this colorful cast of canine characters.
This is a wonderful story that highlights the importance of animal rescue groups and the adoption option. The book is perfect for animal lovers of all ages and would be a great addition to any humane education class.
