This book is an absolute favourite in our house, we read it a few times a day. The story is easy to follow and the illustrations are great. My toddler loves to point out the animals and often joins in with the story with animal sounds. 
Can’t rate is highly enough.

I think I may have reviewed this book before but today we have read it several times and also been to London to see it on the stage in the West End (Kids Week when kids go free with a paying adult). 
The book is a winner in our house because it combines animals and police cars! As usual Julia Donaldson has written in rhyming verse which my children love.
Our version of the book has lots of shiny patches of glitter in each page and every time the ladybird flies, its path is followed with raised glitter that they love feeling along with their finger.
The stage show was amazing and I would recommend it.

Julia Donaldson has written another enticing book full of adventure. It is about the smallest heroine ever who saves the farmer from robbers!!! The illustrations are beautiful too.
My children have really enjoyed this book. We have to read the 'What the Ladybird heard next'.

An absolute favourite in our house for our 1 year old. You can't go wrong with Julia Donaldson's rhyming text, that make the stores both fun to read and to hear. The glittery pages, finding the tiny ladybird and the colourful illustrations make this book so engaging. It's a fun way to teach children farm animals and what noises they make, my tot loves making the animal noises along with me as I read. Fabulous for little bibo and girls.
