Little Ladybird seeks a Husband - a pattern children's book

Picture books that use rhyme and repeat words and phrases help emerging readers gain confidence in reading as they “know” what is coming next before they even read the words. The patterned cadence of these books not only makes them fun to read aloud, it also makes it easier to read as children connect printed text with sounds and words they already know verbally.

Little Ladybird is a very nice and pretty maiden who feels very sad because she lives alone. She has no charming husband with whom to share the joys of life. Facebook had not yet been invented, and our Little Ladybird is too poor to have a social life and meet a husband. But one day, when sweeping the kitchen, she finds a gold coin. She is rich! Time has come for her to seek a husband!

Alas, after too much choice she picks the wrong husband...

"Little Ladybird seeks a Husband", as any of Dulce's kids plays, is written not only as a reader’s entertainment, or as a source for stage performance. It can as well be used for reading in a classroom, or for after-school programs: scripts are held by the readers; lines don’t need being memorized. The stage in this particular could be the front of a classroom; an actual stage isn’t needed. The focus is on reading the text with expressive voices and gestures. Children love it!

The author’s own experience has shown her that children and juveniles with no deep interest in books, and who struggle with reading, gain confidence and get involved in reading as they practice and master simple theatre scripts. With these experiences in mind, any of Dulce’s plays is aiming to help teachers and students stage it if they so wish.

"Little Ladybird seeks a Husband" was written to be performed by actors before an audience of children, young adults and families. This three-act play is ideal for a cast of ten to twenty children with language and memory skills or for a mix of adults and children, for fun and entertaining. It is appropriate to be performed by children aged 8 to 12.
