A Ladybug Clock

The Grouchy Ladybug Eric Carle

The Grouchy Ladybug

We just love The Grouchy Ladybug! It has been a favorite in our home library for quite a few years.

A grouchy ladybug works his way through an array of gradually increasing opponents as he challenges them each to a fight, in an attempt to prove it is easier to fight than share.

His bullish threats are met calmly by all the animals as they politely stand up for themselves.

Intertwined with the gently repetitive structure is a link to time as the clock on each page records how the tiny bully wastes his day! The clock shows intervals of 15 minutes, which is a fabulous way to look at elapsed time with your students.

By the slap of a whale tail, our grouchy, wet, tired and hungry friend is right back where he started from - in the graceful company of the friendly ladybug who helps him to dinner.
