The Ladybug Buddies Incredible Skydiving Adventure by Jason Graham illustrated by Brian Beausoleil

This is a delightful story about two ladybugs who learn what it means to be buddies. They hang out at Buddy's Pop Shop. They love the root beer made right there in the shop. They learn from some customers that buddies do cool things together. They hitch a ride on a couple of fellows who are going skydiving. They have quite an adventure! When they are finally back to Buddy's Pop Shop enjoying some cold root beer, Buddy Two hopes their adventures are over. Then he notices Buddy One staring at the motorcycles outside.

What a fun story with great illustrations. I liked how the ladybugs learned lessons on their adventure, like overcoming fear, never giving up, and what it means to stick with your buddy. It's a cute story for children. I recommend it.
