About the Book

Readers should enjoy this collection of colorful tales about Lily, an extraordinary ladybug. Her story begins in a beautiful garden of calla lilies. On the day that Lily was hatched, the glow that surrounded her has left some in her garden community speechless. Everyone would soon realize that there was something amazing about her. All the little ladybugs love to frolic about the beautiful gardens with Lily. Meanwhile, all the birds in the garden community love to chatter about Lily, and they were especially eager to let all the newcomers in the garden know all about Lily: her unusual trait, her helpful spirit, and her lovely singing voice. There’s never a dull moment in this ladybug’s life. A Ladybug Called Lily highlights this character’s special trait and some of her daily encounters which are usually fanciful, but sometimes daring.

About the Author

Barbara Rose Sumner, a lifelong storyteller, embraced her love of writing over fifty years ago. Her first piece of writing, a poem entitled, "I Strive for Fame", was published in her elementary school newspaper. This writer brings a wealth of ideas to her writing that she acquired from her childhood experiences growing up in Chicago, as well as her interactions with children during her thirty-seven years of teaching and her treasured experiences as the visiting storyteller to her three loving grandchildren. All of these experiences have been immeasurably valuable in helping this writer find her unique voice as an empathetic storyteller who can effectively relate to the varied social and emotional domains of her characters.
