Product Description

Product Description

Ladybug opens the door to reading for kids ages 2 - 6. Every page of Ladybug is beautiful, colorful, and a delight to read. Each issue is filled with charming characters, activities, songs, poems, and stories. Review

If you need some help with creative stories for your young child, Ladybug Magazine is an excellent solution. Each issue is a compilation of stories, poems, and whimsical illustrations that will keep your child entertained just before bed or any other time a good story is in order.

Each issue of Ladybug Magazine contains several full-length stories that are short enough to keep a young child's attention but long enough to tell a complete tale. The topics and tone of each story are geared for the three- to six-year-old mind, so the adult reader doesn't have to explain much. The unique stories can, however, kick off conversations in which the whole family can participate.

Between the stories are short, fun little poems that are illustrated in their own way. Read about animals, insects, kids, imaginary creatures, and more in these short interludes between tales. Some of them are short enough for a child to memorize after a few rounds of rereading.

The read-along factor is the most important part of Ladybug Magazine. Each story has Large Print and easy words, so early learners can follow along. Some eager new readers may even be able to read a few poems or stories themselves, especially if an adult is available to guide them through the print. The pictures serve as great cues to help along the way.

Subscribing to Ladybug Magazine is a great way to find something new and exciting to read together with your young child. Let the pages of Ladybug help you introduce your child to the wonderful world of literature.

I love these magazines. We subscribe to Ladybug, Spider, and Cricket (each for a different child). The stories are great, as is the illustration. An illustrator friend of mine says that it is very prestigious to be asked to illustrate a story in these magazines, and I figure it is the same for the stories. No advertising, of course. The thing I like the best is that each magazine is geared toward a certain age of child. Highlights tries to be something for everyone, so we look through the magazine to find an appropriate story. In Ladybug, we just start at the beginning and read straight through. As the publisher will tell you, when your child outgrows Ladybug, you just let them know and they change your subscription to Spider (and later, Cricket. That's as far as we've gotten).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine but Be Aware! March 10, 2007
By AS King
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I LOVE this magazine, and more importantly my four year old daughter LOVES this magazine. I agree with all the other rave reviews on this page.

I do want other parents to be aware of one thing, though. This company sold my daughter's name and address to other companies and we have begun to receive inappropriate consumer catalogs addressed to her. Because no other company has her address, I called the customer service number on the back of Ladybug and spoke to a rep there. Her supervisor called back the next day - very professionally, and quite apologetic, and told me that yes, they did sell/give out my daughter's name and address. She then said she would remove my daughter's name from the list that they share/sell. I appreciated the call and the admission, however, I thought other parents might want to be aware of this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Lukewarm, Tepid, Dull February 11, 2010
By goonius
Subscription Term Name:1 year
A while back I read an interview with Maurice Sendak. He was talking about the last word in his book, "Where the Wild Things Are" and how "the entire staff at the publishing house were keen on changing the word "hot" to "warm" on the last page. Because "hot" meant "burn." He continues to say that the controversy over that one word "turned into a real world war." So why fight over one word? What's the difference between hot and warm, what does it matter? Sendak says warm sounded dopey, unemotional, undramatic, and that "everything about that book is 'hot'."

Well, in my opinion, everything about this magazine is warm. Tepid, even. Safe to the point of boring.

And that surprised me, truly.

You see, we have been receiving Babybug for a few years now. And as my 3 year old daughter began to outgrow it, Ladybug seemed like the next logical step. The only other Carus magazine I was familiar with was Cricket, circa the early 90's, and I was so impressed by it and the complex and interesting stories and non-fiction pieces it contained, and by Babybug as a sweet simple toddler publication, that I had pretty high hopes for Ladybug.

All of the other reviews - concerning the magazine, not the ordering process - are glowing in their praise. In fact the Amazon reviews contributed greatly to my decision to subscribe to the magazine.

What annoys me primarily about Ladybug is just how dumbed down it seems in contrast to both Babybug and Cricket - and to some extent to Spider, of which I've had the occasion to review a single issue. It's both the stories and poems themselves, as well as the language used.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Children's Magazine June 21, 2003
Subscription Term Name:1 year
We received this magazine as a gift subscription last December. Beautiful illustrations and interesting short stories with large letters so they are easy for children to read. My daughter (age 4) can read some of them herself, my son (age 3) looks at the words and the pictures and listens to my daughter read and I have even enjoyed reading this magazine from time to time. This is a great children's magazine! I recommend this magazine for children who have just learned to read and for children and parents to read together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality reading - no advertisements! December 2, 2003
By A Customer
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Our girls received Ladybug for several years. The magazines are printed on high quality paper, but still after MANY reading, were in good shape.
A great benefit of LADYBUG is there is no advertising. The magazine is full of great illustrations, good site words and bright colors.
A great gift for your own children!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great magazine for teachers and little kids July 31, 2002
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Ladybug is full of useful resources for early childhood teachers and the material is useful even if the magazines are out of date. The ideas in the magazines can be modified for use in the classroom. I teach children from kindergarten to year three, so I need a wide range of suitable materials. Since I am also a parent, I really enjoyed borrowing the magazines for my daughter when she was small. She loved the magazines and when she grew out of them, she graduated to 'Cricket' which is the magazine that follows on from 'Ladybug'.Since 'Ladybug' contains lots of activities, stories and songs, it doesn't take long to build up a useful library of resources. What's more! The activities are age appropriate and they all work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun for Children! August 27, 2002
Subscription Term Name:1 year
My daughter began receiving Ladybug when she was 2 and has continued to enjoy it ever since (she's now almost 6). She was given a subscription to Spider last Christmas (another great magazine from this publishing group) but still returns to Ladybug. It's great for early readers as well as young preschoolers, with content that's adaptable to every age in the recommended range. I sometimes find my daughter sitting on the floor with all our saved issues spread around her, reading through them one by one!

Ladybug or Spider subscription for a 5 year old?
Ladybug is for ages 2 to 6, so a 5-year-old may or may not enjoy it, depending on their reading level.

Click is geared to a slightly older kid, and it's by the same publisher as Ladybug. Or Highlights High Five might be a good one too.
