There’s no place like home, whether that home is a houseboat, a snail shell, an apartment building, or even a town full of frogs! This issue of LADYBUG takes readers through homes of all shapes and sizes. Peek into a beaver lodge with Max and Kate, sail a toy boat with Little Turtle and his friends, rest in a nest or drift off to sleep in a houseboat. Visit tall apartment buildings, board a pirate ship, and help Ladybug, Muddle, and Thud paint their dollhouse! Curl up with a copy of LADYBUG and make yourself at home reading these stories, poems, and songs:
