Ladybugs Have Lots of Spots. Sheryl and Simon Shapiro. 2013. 24 pages. Annick Press. [Source: ARC provided courtesy of NetGalley.]

This is a cute and fun read for younger readers that focuses on shapes. It’s good to read to your child, but is also a fantastic start for emerging readers to try on their own. The rhyming scheme also helps with sounding out words they may not be familiar with. I particularly enjoyed how it connects the round shape to other things in the world – a fun activity was for us to go around the house and see if we had things included in the book and then find our own items that were round. The pictures are crisp and bright, which will catch the eyes of young and old alike. I would absolutely recommend this!
