{imagination // It’s the Little Things}

Hello! I’m linking up with Jess and Ashley for “It’s the Little Things.”

Have you heard of the “Ladybug Girl” books? They are fun picture books by David Soman and Jacky Davis that feature a creative and imaginative girl named Lulu who loves to dress up as “Ladybug Girl” and go on adventures. I hadn’t heard about the books before until we received Ladybug Girl and Bingo in the mail. Will just loved the book and it soon became our bedtime favorite! At the library, we found all sorts of Ladybug Girl books, including my favorite, Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy. Will said he doesn’t have a favorite-he likes them all:) They even have Ladybug Girl board books for younger kiddos, which Harper loves! If you haven’t discovered these books, you should check them out!

After reading the Ladybug Girl books, Will headed outside the other day to play. He created a pirate ship with Harper and played in the sand to “make” pirate food.  Both kiddos played well and used their imagination to play pirates for a while. 
Heading up to the pirate ship.
I love seeing Will and Harper use their creativity in their play.  We encourage as much outside playtime as possible, which is easy for us since they love the outdoors.
