Ladybirds Do Not Go to Day Care is a spirited, funny and empowering picture book to encourage even the most nervous of children to spread their wings and try something new.

Mum says it’s the first day of day care, but Ravi’s dressed up as his favourite insect, and he is quite certain that ladybirds do not go to day care. In fact, this ladybird would rather stay home and eat aphids, thank you very much!

Can an anxious and unsure Ravi find the bravery he needs to take flight?
