5 out of 5 stars

Spots the ladybug wants to play hide and seek, but Beepo the lightning bug says that ladybugs are all too brightly colored and can’t hide well. Spots is determined to prove Beepo wrong in the most hilarious game of Hide-and-Seek ever!

I loved this cute book!!! So adorable to see the other ladybugs trying to hide, and they fail miserably because they are just too red and bright. But Spots is smart, and he has a plan to fool Beepo. I loved his spunky character!

The die-cut openings are arranged so cleverly to showcase important aspects of hiding in the story. The ladybugs try to learn how to hide from other insects and creatures. There is a brown butterfly who hides on a brown brick wall, and his wings are die-cut through to the other side of the page, making it a really special element of the story. A green caterpillar and a stick insect are also die-cut this way to emphasize how they hide in their natural environment. So clever!

The illustrations are just beautiful with lovely colors and a cute design. The little insect characters are so adorable! I love the cartoony art style and pretty backgrounds.

This book is really funny and sweet!  This book is available as a hardcover and also as a board book.
