Synopsis

Zoe and Beans have found a ladybird! But where has it gone? It's nowhere to be found in the garden, but they do discover all kinds of other things whilst they're looking. A classic hide-and-seek story -- can you spot the ladybird on every page?

Another title in the brilliant series of board books featuring the adorable Zoe and Beans and all of their friends. With its gentle text and irresistible illustrations, this book is perfect for sharing with toddlers and young children.

Look out for the other board books in the series: LOOK AT ME!, WE'RE NOT SCARED and HOW MANY PETS?

In the media

As always, both books feature really sweet, simple stories and gorgeous, brightly coloured, eye-catching illustrations. . . Libby always loves the Zoe and Beans books, and each time she has some new ones I notice her taking in more and more from both the story and the illustrations. This time, she particularly loved looking for the ladybird. I know how much she enjoyed the books, because a couple of days after we'd last read them, we were sat on the bed in my room reading when Libby suddenly jumped up. She climbed off the bed and ran into her room, shouting "read the Beans book!" Sure enough, back she came with one of these books in each hand. I think it's safe to say that they're a hit!

Millie especially loves the Zoe & Beans range. She is just two and the lovely bright illustrations really capture her interest. . . . Hello Ladybird is a really lovely hide-and-seek story. Zoe and Beans find a ladybird, but then it goes missing! Whilst looking for the ladybird, they find lots of other things! It is a really fun story, I suspect Millie can relate to it because she is so inquisitive at the moment!

When we received a parcel from Macmillan at the weekend and I showed LM the contents she got very excited! She instantly recognised her favourites and started laughing and clapping. I really wish I'd videoed her reaction to share with you, I suspect she is Zoe and Beans' number one fan. . . Both books are short and are definitely aimed at young toddlers, I would say from around age one to three. Bud isn't as interested in them as his sister but he loves how excited she gets with them and is also happy to show them to her, or she will look at them on her own too. I really enjoy that LM recognises the characters and books now and that she shows a clear preference.
