The Bad Tempered Ladybird

In the Junior Room we shared Eric Carle's book ' The Bad Tempered Ladybird'. 
The bad-tempered ladybird picks fights with every animal he meets, but soon learns the importance of friends and turns into a far nicer, happier bug. The beautifully illustrated pages of this entertaining book demonstrate the sizes of the different animals and the sun's path across the sky as time passes. We used this book in a Math activity and made ladybirds which display our doubles.
