Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
Ants bustle around near their nests or colonies while they work to make tunnels, gather food, and wait on the queen. In this book, the busy ant life is discussed in first person point of view from the perspective of a worker ant. The ant narrating this story begins with how it started as an egg the size of a pinhead, hatched into a squirmy larva, and spun a silk case around itself for protection until it was "ant sized" and ready to hatch. The ant also tells about its jobs and how it will become a guard ant one day. Detailed realistic illustrations give readers a good opportunity to examine the creature up close. Side bars are filled with intriguing facts such as one that states an ant uses a stinging liquid known as formic acid to spray its enemies. Text is short, in large print, and reader friendly. Descriptive and action words work well to make each word count and to maintain interest. An index, five-word glossary, and extra fact page consisting of questions and answers make up end matter. The book, as with others in "What is it like to be..." series, makes an excellent addition to science lessons geared to life cycles and insects. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
