This book is just so much fun and GREAT to read aloud where you can really add to the building excitement with your tone of voice. The rhymes are right-on and even my 2 year old is on the edge of his seat when we read it. The first time I read it, my two year old was very concerned and a little bothered because the writing is very 'dangerous'--the author does a good job of creating anxiety. But now that my little one knows the ant gets saved every time, he squeals with glee as the tension in the book builds, and always has a big smile for the ant when he jumps to safety. And I love Jack in the book, who comes off as a gentle giant who ends the book with a picnic with the ant, his new friend. Great book!

    Upgrade to Read & Play

    Just commenting on the $1 I paid to upgrade this book to a "Read and Play" from a "Read to Me." I would say the upgrade is not worth it. For $1, you get three activities
    1) touch the railroad track to hear the sound of an oncoming train
    2) touch the train to hear it make a sound
    3) draw a snack on the plate

    Compared to the other upgrade I got for "Splat the Cat" (which was free, not a $1), this upgrade is sad. With "Splat" you got many, many fun activities. This is just barely an upgrade and IMO, not worth paying for.

    Does not work on IPad App!

    It does look like a good book; however, there should be some type of disclaimer to let you know that the book will not download on Nook apps, and since all we have is the IPad, I guess we just bought a book that we cannot even read.
