   Life in the body of an ant.......
This is a funny book about size and the BIG WORLD and also about the reason for the following rules. Two ants start on a journey to feed a blissfully wonderful substance to retrieve the queen and end up playing Hookie. Their funny antics, discovering the world of humans, lands them into a catastrophe after another. As a read-aloud, you will have instant attention and good for guessing what item causes the ants to flounder. As a reading level book, it is a sure thing for grade 2 or higher grade 1. Kids will love and identify with the characters in size and antics.
The book is seen from the point of view of what the ants would be like. I love reading it to them, showing them a glimpse of the illustration and having them make an inference with evidence of where these two bad apples ended.
   Children's lit. review
The story serves as a good example of how greed can be harmful for students. It also demonstrates how pictures can be used to help a reader understand the text. For example, the author never names the crystal, but by looking at the pictures they can determine that it is sugar. Also, by using the ants to teach a lesson, children may not even realize that they are learning. It is written in an attractive yet concise manner and could be useful in teaching children to write text to describe pictures.
   A fun and functional book
Most importantly, it is great for teaching writing. It has a clear beginning, middle and end. If you are not a teacher, it is also a great read aloud for children, with a comforting ending.
This is such a great book and a cute and fun teaching tool. I used it in my 4th and 5th grade classes to teach inferring and other comprehension skills.
   A Second grade favorite
Every year, I read this book to my students. The children love to guess exactly where the two ants are when we move along.
   Love this book.
Immediately he loved it. He is now 3 and still loves it!
   Great book!
I purchased it as a gift for a 4-year-old, because I loved it when I was little.
   Definitely a favorite of mine
My first teacher used to read it to us and i remember being so entranced by it. Haven 't read it for many years now, but with my own little ones growing up, I thought it would be fun to read it to them. It came in perfect condition and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
The kids thought the ants'perspective was interesting, but I found the book pretty boring myself.
