Ladybug for iPhone and iPad review: Learn about ladybugs in a fun and interactive way

Scholastic First Discovery: Ladybug is an iPhone and iPad app that is all about ladybugs. It teaches about the basic anatomy, eating habits, and developmental stages of ladybugs and more.

Each page of Ladybug is narrated by a woman's voice and includes fun interactions. For examples, you can view a 3D model of a ladybug, tap its wings to see them open, and help a ladybug eat a bunch of aphids.

The good
