Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad
This is a fantastic story about young friendship and the difficult task of learning to empathize with other people. Ladybug Girl is thrilled to be having three friends over for a play date and she has their time together all planned out. When things don't go exactly as she hopes, she has to learn to adjust to other kids having their own opinions too. My children request this book over and over again and I never mind reading it because the playful illustrations do a wonderful job of inspiring their imaginations and the dialogue between Ladybug Girl and her friends is perfect for starting conversations about friendship dynamics.
