I have a book with a grouchy ladybug who is constantly looking for a fight. I learned a lot from that book, including the word “ladybug”. Nowadays I like to open the book, find the ladybug and point at it on every page. Today my parents surprised me by enabling an encounter with a real ladybug. It was really exciting to see the real thing and I was very courageous. I got just a little scared when the ladybug climbed on my finger and getting rid of it by shaking my hand took longer than I anticipated. But having a real ladybug on my finger freaked me out only once – I even enjoyed it afterwards.
