Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
I serve my queen, live in a colony, and use my antennas to smell and listen . . . what am I? In Hall's book, we find out what ants are, how they look, and what they do, just as the table of contents promises. Geared to early readers, images support the text, and repetition gently helps readers learn new words. Shorter than this review, the book's word count totals 96. Close up, full color photographs make a tiny ant as big as my hand so I can easily see his spindly legs, segmented body, bent antennas, and mutton chop jaws. Twenty-four pages in length, this book includes a table of contents, an index, book and website references, and a glossary. The web reference is Capstone Press's own www.facthound.com—a "safe, fun way to find" related Internet sites. A note at the beginning of the book informs us that this series "supports national science standards related to the diversity of life and heredity." Other titles in the "Bugs, Bugs, Bugs!" series include Crickets, Grasshoppers, Ladybugs, Praying Mantises, and Spiders. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 7.
