Life Lessons from Ladybug Girl

"Ladybug Girl is sooooooooooooo awesome." sighs my 8-year-old after we put down the last book in the pile. Yep, we read them all in one afternoon. It was a perfectly delightful afternoon.

My girls have some messages for you.

"Mama, can you tell them I like Ladybug Girl and Bingo the best. It's so funny." says my 6-year-old.

"Mama, tell them about The Super Fun Edition. I love it. The book jacket folds out into a poster and there's paper dolls inside. They're so awesome! And, they've got reusable sticker costumes for Ladybug Girl to wear." says my 8-year-old. (I'll tell you more about this one later.)

And I want to say thank you to Penguin Kids for sponsoring this post and giveaway.

Disclosure: Penguin Books sent us complimentary copies of the Ladybug Girls books and are providing the prize for the giveaway. All opinions are my own. This post also contains Amazon Affiliate links. Please see my disclosure for more details.

After reading the Ladybug Girl books, I paused. There are so many life lessons to learn from Ladybug Girl - not preachy life lessons - just simple lessons from a girl who always stays true to herself.

From Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy, we learned that if you compromise with a friend, you can have so much fun! After all, it's more fun to play with friends than to argue.

From Ladybug Girl at the Beach we learned that it takes some bravery to try new things. But, if you do, you can have more fun than you did did worrying about it.

From Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad, we learned that friends care about how each other feels and it's important to say you're sorry when you hurt someone's feelings - even if you did it on accident.

From Ladybug Girl and Bingo we learned that everyone has responsibilities and you can still have fun while taking care of those responsibilities.

From Ladybug Girl and the Big Snow we learned to always look on the bright side even when everything seems to be going wrong.

From Ladybug Girl and the Dress-Up Dilemma we learned that it's best to always be yourself. You're you and that's what makes you awesome!

From Ladybug Girl and the Best Ever Playdate, we leaned that friends are better than even the most fantastic toys.

Thank you Ladybug Girl for showing us how to be kind, brave, and true.

Penguin Kids is celebrating Ladybug Girl books by David Soman and Jacky Davis with a brand new gift edition of the first Lady Bug Girl book. Ladybug Girl: The Super Fun Edition has been a favorite with my girls ever since it landed on our front porch. Not only do you get a hardback copy of Ladybug Girl, but it's packed with other fun stuff. The book jacket folds out into an awesome poster of Ladybug Girl and Bingo. Plus, the best part ever as described by my daughters, it contains Ladybug Girl and Bingo paper dolls along with two pages of reusable sticker outfits in the back. The paper dolls have already gone on many adventures at our house. 

I'm so excited that I get to give away a copy  of Ladybug Girl The Super Fun Edition to one of you. (US based addresses only, please). You can enter below. Giveaway ends October 28, 2015.

  1. I know my 2 granddaughters would love me to win this for them! bjn1957{at}gmail{dot}com

  2. I would give this to my six-year-old - she LOVES the Ladybug Girl books, but we don't actually own them (just borrow from the library, over and over).

  3. My three year old and I love Ladybug girl. I love that I can teach her to be strong and independent in a way that she can understand. We have the first book, but borrow the others from the library. If we won we would share the duplicate copy with a friend or send it to Grandma's so there would be a copy in both places.

  4. So fun! I would give it to my great niece!!
