PreSchool-K—This book will have youngsters jumping, wiggling, dancing, pretending, and laughing—all in reaction to a bossy, toothy ladybug with chartreuse skin. "Hey, you! Yes, I'm talking to you! STAND UP! No, I changed my mind…SIT DOWN! No….STAND UP!...Pretend you have a tiny bug on your nose. WIGGLE IT OFF!" Each spread has a dialogue balloon with large text and fonts that vary in color and size. Backgrounds change with every turn of the page, revealing glowing shades of blue, orange, and fuchsia. The expressive ladybug is outlined in broad black lines and seems only inches away from readers. Adults will enjoy using this title to encourage lively activity and imaginative games. Children will love everything about it—especially the surprise ending.—Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY
