Summary

Summary

Ladybug Girl and her friends help at a dog-adoption fair and discover that even the littlest things can make a big difference in this tenth hardcover in the New York Times bestselling Ladybug Girl series.

Lulu is excited to meet all the rescue dogs when the pet-adoption fair comes to her local farmers' market. She wants to take all of them home--but she already has Bingo, and Mama says one dog is enough for their family. That doesn't mean Lulu can't help, though. It's time for Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad--her friends Grasshopper Girl and Bumblebee Boy--to step in! The Bug Squad can do all kinds of little but important things, like brush the dogs, play with them, and bring them water and food. And then Lulu comes up with the perfect plan to help the dogs find their forever homes. Her idea is such a success that the Bug Squad knows they'll be back again next week. Together, they can help every dog get adopted.

This beloved series is celebrated for its gentle, authentic, and imaginative exploration of kid-emotions and -truths.

Publisher's Weekly Review

In her latest outing, Lulu, clothed as always in her Ladybug Girl attire, "flies around the farmer's market, pointing to the colorful fruits and vegetables. "All the colors make a rainbow!" she says. Another sight at the market that interests Lulu-and Bingo, her steadfast basset hound-is that of dogs waiting under a sign that says "Adopt a Dog." Lulu wants to adopt all of the dogs, which range from a small dachshund to a big, shaggy sheepdog, and in an especially gleeful scene, Davis shows what it might look like if eight additional dogs lived in her house. Lulu decides it is a bit much, and her mother tells her that "one dog is the right amount for our family." When the rest of the "Bug Squad" (Grasshopper Girl and Bumblebee Boy) shows up, the three are determined to help in other ways: they play with the dogs, fill their bowls, and introduce them to prospective adopters. Soman and Davis deliver another Ladybug Girl adventure with heartwarming authenticity. Ages 3-5. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-The latest installment of the series has a great message that no matter how small one is, they can make a difference. While visiting a farmer's market in their town, Ladybug Girl notices some cute dogs from an animal shelter. When her parents explain that these dogs are looking for forever homes, Ladybug Girl decides that she and her friends need to help. They spend time caring for the animals and orchestrate a parade through the market. In the end, they match a family with a big happy dog, further adding to the warm feelings that this story provides. With its feel-good message and young characters, this will be a favorite among young patrons. The vibrant illustrations amp up the cuteness factor. VERDICT A great addition for any primary school or public library, especially where this series is popular.-Jasmine L. Precopio, Fox Chapel Area School District, Pittsburgh © Copyright 2018.

Kirkus Review

Ladybug Girl Lulu and her dog, Bingo, help with a dog adoption event in this latest entry in the long-running series about a spunky girl who wears a ladybug costume wherever she goes. When Ladybug Girl and her mom are shopping at a farmers market, they meet members of a dog rescue group with several dogs ready for new homes. Ladybug Girl wants to take all the dogs home with her, but her mom explains that one dog is best for their family. Ladybug Girl helps out by carrying water to the dogs, and then she recruits her friends Bumblebee Boy and Grasshopper Girl to help by playing with the dogs and drawing more attention to the adoption event. They create some excitement by marching through the market with the dogs in a pet parade, leading to the adoption of one of the dogs. The story skillfully distills a complex issue into a situation that younger children can grasp, with concrete assistance from the Bug Squad kids, using their own ideas. Perky watercolor and ink illustrations show the charming children and cavorting canines from a variety of perspectives. Ladybug Girl and her family are white, as is Bumblebee boy; Grasshopper Girl and the woman from the animal shelter are black.Another satisfying adventure for Ladybug Girl's many fans.
