This Ladybug Girl Storytime is past, but the activities are still fun.Ladybug Girl Storytime and Meet & Greet Red Balloon Bookshop 891 Grand Ave., St. Paul, MN 55105 Saturday, June 15, 10:30 a.m. My first introduction to Ladybug Girl was the toy aisle at Target, so my expectations were not high for this book. I was expecting something made to sell products to kids. So, I was pleasantly surprised when we got this book from the library. It is charming and artistic and poetic. I enjoyed seeing the ways Lulu kept herself busy in her bedroom and backyard — all the time thinking there was nothing to do. I loved the way the words sometimes tumbled down the page, like an ambling little girl. The subsequent books did not hold my attention as much as the first, but I can see where the right little girl may enjoy the whole series. If you have a little girl or boy who loves Ladybug Girl, she can attend a Ladybug Girl Storytime at The Red Balloon Bookshop on Saturday, June 15, 2013. She may also enjoy the official Ladybug Girl website, where she can play games like dress up and print out color pages. If you want to really make a ladybug day of it, Bee In Our Bonnet has an entire ladybug-themed party plan including these cake-pops. (Last week I bought a cake-pop pan at Aldi for $3.99. We plan on making a lot of them this year.)

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.
