Reviews - What do customers think about Ladybug at Orchard Avenue (Smithsonian's Backyard) (Smithsonian's Backyard)?

Beautiful illustrations but difficult language  Mar 24, 2007
I'm a teacher, and believe me I want books to have some challenging vocabulary. However, this book is beyond the comprehension of most adults, let alone the young child audience that picture books are intended for. The illustrations are nice, but any child will be frustrated by the vocabulary (and adults will be frustrated at having to explain a word in every single sentence). I had planned to read this book aloud to a classroom, but it might as well be in Russian because they won't understand it at all, which is a shame because they are inherently interested in bugs.
Beautiful, bright-colored presentation.  Apr 2, 2001
Written in the form of an adventure, the book is filled with dramatic tension as the ladybug survives the dangerous life of your own backyard. It comes with a beautiful red, white, and black ladybug plush toy about nine inches x seven inches. It's a tiny book, but it's well written -- not "written down" to children -- and includes a glossary at the back. I think it's probably for third graders and above, but I predict adults will be happy to sneak a peek at it when the kids aren't looking.
Interesting Facts and Nice Illustration  Nov 17, 1998
I read this to my two year old twins after they discovered a ladybug on our kitchen table. The book kept their attention and I learned some things I didn't know about ladybugs, too.
