One morning a little ladybug wakes up from her “long winter’s nap.” Sitting on green leaf, the ladybug calls out to a baby bunny who is sleeping in a hole in the ground. “Wake up! Wake up!” she says. Soon the ladybug and the bunny are running through the fresh green grass to where a baby chick is sleeping in a nest and to where a butterfly is sleeping in a cocoon. The ladybug tells the baby chick and the baby butterfly to wake up. Spring has arrived, the sun is up, and a whole fresh world awaits them. Then something happens that the ladybug is not expecting.

Little children are sure to enjoy reading the story in this seasonal board book. There are flaps to lift on every page, and a colorful and surprising ending.
