The Grouchy Ladybug, by Eric Carle, author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, is named one of the Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children by the National Education Association.
An arrogant ladybug challenges another ladybug to a fight over some aphids, but then decides he isn't large enough to be worth fighting. He then travels around the world and encounters a series of increasingly larger animals, challenging each to a fight but then declining and looking for a larger animal. See what happens when he encounters a blue whale!
This book pairs perfectly with our personalized ladybug blanket. Also great as a sibling gift!
