Ladybugs (Creepy Critters)
by Sian Smith

For the youngest reader, this book features big bright photographs of insects that are highly popular with children:  ladybugs! It has lively rhyming text and large format that makes this a perfect for reading aloud. The rhymes really help beginning readers sail through the text, as well.
