Lulu is excited about her playdate with Finny--and especially excited about Finny's Rolly-Roo. In fact, Lulu loves the toy so much that she . . . plays with it more than she plays with Finny. So when the girls accidentally break the Rolly-Roo, will Lulu realize her mistake? In this compassionate and charming story about the value of a great friend, the girls repair the broken toy, and soon forget all about it, blasting off on new imaginative adventures together. This eighth book in the series, celebrated for its gentle and authentic look at kid-truths, brings to the Ladybug Girl world both more diversity and a story perfect for any kid, any day of the year.
This box set includes three of the Ladybug Girl board books: Ladybug Girl Dresses Up!, Ladybug Girl Makes Friends, and Ladybug Girl Says Good Night. These concept board books are aimed at the youngest Ladybug Girl fans and perfectly complement the hardcovers and the rest of the series. Readers can spend the day with Lulu as she gets dressed up, meets new playmates, builds a snow Bingo, and gets ready for bedtime.
When Lulu puts on her ladybug costume, she becomes Ladybug Girl--a superhero who uses her imagination to have adventures right in her own backyard. She and Bingo, her basset hound, together prove that they are not too little to explore nature, build forts, and make their own big fun. This deluxe gift edition of the story that started it all includes a jacket that folds out into a poster, a CD of the audio narration, reusable stickers to dress up Lulu and Bingo paper-doll-style, and a brand-new cover design--a must to kick off or complete any Ladybug Girl collection.
