Pitch :
Nel is not a ladybug like the others: she has no spots on her back. Nel goes up to other ladybugs playing together who do have spots. And, day after day, it’s the same story: because of her peculiarity, Nel can’t seem to make new friends.
This book, which encourages the acquisition of the days of the week and of numbers, deals with the questions of difference and the perception of others.
