What The Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson was amongst the 10 books set which I had got for T a few months ago. Initially, I thought she might be a little small for such a long read but introduced it when peer moms suggested that their toddlers took to it well. T really did took to it well, much like fish to water. Over the last few months, we have read it numerous times and she can’t get enough of someone who wants to steal the fine prize cow.
The ladybird, who never before has said a word, today tells the animals on the farm about a robbery plan, to steal the fine prize cow! It is now up to them to save the cow. How do you think they do it?
WHAT WE LIKED
- The mixed-media full paged illustrations, bright and big for toddlers to pick up the shapes and even features of the animals.
- Short, rhyming sentences.
- Animal sounds and their owners.
- A little moral lesson in unity and being true.
WHAT WE DISLIKED nothing as such, the book is a hit.
A fun farm animal story not to be missed. Published by Pan Macmillian (Macmillian Children’s Books) Recommended age 2+ years.0 likes
