The Book

This fun rhyming book is a celebration of being who you are created to be.  

A unique little ladybug, named Jitterbug - Lady B. Marie, goes against tradition in the ladybug world because she loves to strum her electric guitar and belts out rock and roll melodies.  She is unlike all the other ladybugs who are quiet, shy and demure.  Oh my! 

She screeches heartfelt songs that are loud, messy, off key and are enhanced by crazy unprecedented dance moves. The other ladybugs are not impressed with her taste of music.  Jitterbug isn't intimidated by their reactions.  She doesn't give up and continues to march to her own drum and musical rhythm.  

The illustrations are bold, vibrant and electrifying... perfect to give the book a rock and roll vibe.  This inspiring book will encourage kids to live out their dreams and follow their hearts desires.  I love the book and highly recommend it.
