Ladybug

The book is about ladybugs. Here's the steps of the ladybug: first the male ladybug climbs onto the female. Then the female lays eggs. Then the female dies. The larvae hatch and eat non-stop! The ladybug larvae eat 30 aphids a day!

I like the illustrations, because the illustrator drew them just like they took them with the camera. My favorite part was when the larvae turned into the pupa, because I would like to see what's inside. My favorite character was the larvae, because it had something that looked like spikes.

I recommend this book to all bug catchers, especially my sister.
