What's good?

* It is engaging and interactive and I love that we can also touch the objects in each page on the screen and the words pop out to tell you what it is!

* I like the storyline where it tells how the life of a ladybug in hunting for food and also defending itself from predators.

* I used the opportunity in this book to teach my 3 year old son about the body parts of a ladybug, how it hunts for food and also defends itself from predators.

* The illustration is beautiful and quite life-like!

Room for Improvement?

* I would prefer if the word that pops out when we touched it comes with the audio sound as currently only the text word pops out.

* I would to see a diagram of the life cycle of a ladybug!
