Ladybugs by Gail Gibbons

Gail Gibbons is a master at creating nonfiction books for younger children.  True to her form, Gibbons has written shorter nonfiction captions and text to accompany illustrations that include identifying text to help extend the understanding of the text.  For example, did you know, ladybugs have a yellow fluid that oozes from their leg joints when they feel threatened?  Yum!  Ladybugs are also being used by many farmers as a way to help rid crops of other harmful insects.  Another great addition to the Gibbons library of nonfiction!
