Ladybugs for Loretta -- Reviews

"Ladybugs for Loretta is a winning combination of entertaining story and accessible science lesson. Young readers will come away with an appreciation for, and understanding of, ladybugs, thanks to the enthusiasm and imaginative spirit of the book's extraordinary young heroine. While Francie Mion's two-color ink sketches do a good job of illustrating the plot, Loretta bursts to life from the text itself." -- Haemi Balgassi

"A sense of reverence for life works throughout the story in the way Loretta feels about and handles the tiny red creatures. The illustrations are simple and charming, mostly done in black and white allowing the red ladybugs to stand out. This book is a good choice for those who enjoy nature and mischievous little girls!
