This is the most jazzed-up version possible of the classic rhyme about ladybugs!
So here's the scoop: Ten Little Ladybugs is a board book with bright red, yellow and orange plastic ladybugs permanently embedded into the ten pages (and they each have a variety of spots, just like ladybugs do in real life). Each page has carefully placed cutouts so that when you turn it, the ladybug on that page disappears but the others appear to move to the next spread. What you end up with is a clever rhyming book that teaches simple subtraction with three-dimensional ladybugs.
This book is sturdy, colorful and well-made. The ladybugs show no signs of falling off even after two years of being explored by curious little fingers. My children love the novelty of it and request it again and again. Completely recommended for kids ages one to five.

We got this book for our grandson just turning one, and it was his favorite book all weekend. He loved the illustrations, and loved just looking at it himself. An added bonus was that our granddaughter, just about three, loved to have it read to her and loved counting the ladybugs as you turned each page. I would guess that next she will be reading it to her brother. (It's that type of book -- seems to grow with the kids!)

As a Child Development Specialist I understand the importance of reading to infants - so you can imagine my disappointment when my baby had an active resentment to my attempts to "read" to her.
Suddenly (like a light switch), at 13 months, my daughter became completely enamored with books. Ten Little Ladybugs is her absolute favorite... and we read it 5-7 times EVERY day. She pulls it out from the coffee table and crawls into my lap for story time. Both the writing and illustrations are magnificent.
Reading this book to my daughter is such a fun experience that I truly believe every child should be fortunate enough to have that important grown-up in their life share this magical book with them.
I now give this book as gifts to all baby and grandparent showers I attend.

This is one of my 10 month old's very favorite books. When he goes to his little bookshelf, this is the book he invariably pulls down and flips though. When I read it to him, he is totally riveted. When he flips through it by himself, I see him touching the ladybugs (since they're 3 dimensional) and exploring the holes on the left.
This book is brilliant and works on many levels. It's very melodic (great rhyming verses w/out being too sing-song-y). Example: "Ten little ladybugs, sitting on a vine. Along came a caterpiller, then there were..." turn the page and you get "nine little ladybugs...."
Plus, you've got each number on the page represented 4 ways -- on the right, you see how many ladybugs remain (i.e., 10 of them). On the left, you've got the number displayed ("10"), plus the holes add up to the same number, and then the verse at the bottom has the number written out ("ten little ladybugs...")
All the characters throughout the book (the caterpillar, the grasshopper, the turtle, etc.) show up at the end so you it's not like they come & go and are forgotten, and each page is beautifully illustrated. The book is also very well put together and I don't fear that the ladybugs are going to come off when my son grabs them. This book is very well used in our house and it's still holding up incredibly well. We highly recommend it!

I keep finding my 11 month old pulling this book to the floor and looking at the pages. When it is read to him he knows the close it at the end and then fusses if you don't read it again! It is my favorite of all of his current books, so I am glad that it is his favorite, too. I am probably going to be very tired of it soon because we read it a few times in a row each day - per his "request". But it is a darling book and would make a really neat present if you are looking for a good idea. We received our copy as a gift from a thoughtful neighbor and I am sure glad that we did!

Ten Little Ladybugs was given to my son as a gift when he was 6 mo old. Since then (he is 10 mo. now) my husband and I read it to him at least 5x a day! In a pile of books he will search and recover this book without hesitation. He loves turning the pages, the bright colors, and of course touching those adorable ladybugs!!! This is now a staple gift for all my friends having babys!

My 10 1/2 month old son received this as a Christmas gift and absolutely loves it! He wants me to read it to him over and over again. Once he's had enough of that, he carries it with him everywhere. It is a beautifully illustrated book and very easy to read the counting, rhyming storyline.

When our daughter was 6 months, we ordered a bunch of board books to start her library -- Dr. Seuss, Richard Scarry, Curious George, Eric Carle, Sandra Boynton, and others. This one, however, is her favorite! From the first time we opened it, she went straight for the ladybugs.
Our daughter is 7 months now and loves grabbing the ladybugs every chance she gets. She tries her darndest to get the other board books in her mouth, but this one gets a little less wear and tear because she is content to feel the ladybugs and look at the bright drawings. It is a beautifully illustrated story with lines that are fun to read out loud, and I have no doubt our daughter will enjoy this book on other levels too as she gets older.
