Review

Lucy is a Ladybird with no spots! This story follows Lucy as she meets many creatures who have spots and donate one to Lucy until eventually she has her own array of multicoloured spots! A great story for introducing the subject of 'difference' to younger children, Lucy eventually realises that even though she has tried to look the same as the other ladybirds, she is still different....and actually, that's a wonderful thing! The other ladybirds admire Lucy's multicoloured spots and the last page reveals a beautiful, fold out illustration of a lot of multicoloured ladybirds. This story is simple and easy to follow as it has quite a repetitive structure. Picture book / Ages 3+ / Reviewed by Lizi Coombs, teacher.
