Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-In this seek-and-find picture book, a cheerful ladybug hides in a series of places familiar to young children: a bathtub full of toys, a playroom, a cluttered staircase. Energetic rhyming verses introduce each scene and invite preschoolers to find the beetle. The following page shows a close-up of where it is hiding. The book makes excellent use of white backgrounds to direct attention and provide breathing space. Ljungkvist's digital illustrations are colorful and interesting, but not too busy. They promote comfort and confidence by repeating objects, such as a robot and blocks that spell out "ladybug" in different configurations.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MDα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

Ladybug loves to hide, begins this brightly illustrated picture book. Luckily for young hide-and-seek fans, she hides in plain sight, but she isn’t always easy to find in a picture that’s chock-full of toys and household objects. Busy with varied colors, shapes, patterns, and styles, the digital collage pictures challenge the eye to make sense of the scenes. Very young children may have trouble spotting Ladybug on their first time through the book, but they’ll soon want to show off their expertise. The book’s design intersperses crowded seek-and-find pages with plain white or solid-colored pages carrying a few words of simple text. Acutely aware of how preschoolers respond to language, Fox leads them through the game with a brief, pleasing text. Each challenge begins with the same lilting question (Yoo-hoo, Ladybug! Where are you?) and ends with a short rhyme revealing the answer, such as stuck on the stairs / with a couple of bears! Playful! Preschool-Kindergarten. --Carolyn Phelan

This book is a perfect blend of rhyming, silliness, and fun.

I was introduced to Mem Fox in the early 90s through her books on literacy for teachers. I loved her writing for adults, but I also remember immediately falling in love with her children's book, Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge - a great story of compassion. Over the years, whenever I see books by her, I reach for them to check them out.

I love Yoo-Hoo, Ladybug. First, I love the word, "yoo hoo" - it's so evocative of another time, and perhaps, place. I want to bring it back! And, yes, the repeating lines, which are so important in early literacy to draw children in to a book and words. It's predictable, fun, and easily repeated. Perfect. The illustrations are wonderful - great for pointing and naming, and I do love that the "answer" to the question, "Where are you?" is on a page that follows the question. Thus, if the ladybug isn't found initially, it's then pointed out for easy reference - and turning back to the page to find Ladybug is equally fun the second time - or perhaps more - around.

Yoo-Hoo, Ladybug is interactive, engaging and altogether charming - everything one might look for in a delightful book for young children.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By J.Prather TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 26, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
I'm a big fan of this author and eagerly look forward to her work. She seems to have a direct line to the minds of toddlers and preschoolers, and is easily able to form a connection with her audience through nothing more than a few well-placed words or rhymes. Yoo-Hoo Ladybug is an excellent choice for any parent wishing to expand their toddler's collection. This text flows well, consisting of repeating questions of "Yoo-Hoo Ladybug! Where are you?" The reader is then able to answer with a "There you are" accompanied by a complex picture of assorted toys. It's then the child's job to find the tiny ladybug. Turn the page and you get the answer to the puzzle along with a nice pair of rhyming words: "tucked in a box with Rabbit and Fox."

The illustrations provide just enough of a challenge to make finding the ladybug a bit of a struggle, but not too much as to discourage little readers. The pictures are filled with familiar objects and familiar scenes, with toys, baths, blocks, and animals filling the pages. The illustrations are visually interesting, offering up plenty to talk about in a wide variety of colors. The artist uses some mixed-media elements to draw the eye and guarantee that this book will be looked at again and again, long after all the ladybugs have been found. Yoo-Hoo Ladybug is a book that is sure to be read and played with again and again. What more could you ask?

What toddler doesn't love peek-a-boo,where are you?! This book is a perfect blend of rhyming, silliness, and fun. Older children can enjoy looking for the ladybug in the pictures, too.

Wonderful, beautifully illustrated book. Fun to search for ladybug, fun to discuss all the objects shown. Love that ladybug drives a bug, i. e., the beetle drives a VW beetle. My grand son really enjoys this book especially when different people yell, "Yoo Hoo, Ladybug!"

My preschooler LOVES this book. She knows where the ladybug is on every page so I take the time to have her find different things on the pages too.
As simple as this book is, it's a favorite for her and it's not annoying to read! That's always a plus for parents.
