Overview

Anthony Ant Goes to France by Julie Bettendorf

Join Anthony Ant as he travels around the world! Hi, my name is Anthony Ant, and I love to go places. When I travel, I can fit into some pretty small spaces. Once I curled up in a suitcase, as snug as could be. When I came out, I was in beautiful France. Whoopee! These are the tales of Anthony Ant, a child's travel companion and all-around great adventurer. Anthony travels in style, comfortably lodged in a suitcase, and he never knows what strange, new country he will find himself in. In Anthony Ant Goes to France, he travels to Paris, where he meets Lulu Ladybug. Together they explore the food, culture, and sights of the city. Anthony visits the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral, eats French pastry, and gets to know the French people, all with his new friend Lulu.

Bon Voyage Anthony! This is a 32 page, slightly over-sized, soft paper bound children’s book.  It has brightly colored illustrations on every page.  The story is about an ant named Anthony that takes a trip to France.  While there, Anthony meets a new friend, Lulu Ladybug.  The two of them visit the Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, and Notre Dame. This fun book is written in a lighthearted, whimsical rhyming style.  Children will enjoy Lulu and Anthony’s adventures while learning a bit of what makes Paris famous.  They will learn about the Mona Lisa, the favorite street for people to walk their dogs on, and that Paris is called “The City of Lights.”  The book also shows that the city can be explored by riding aboard a boat floating down the River Seine. The rhymes and brilliant illustrations are sure to capture children’s interest.  Anyone who wants a cheery book for youngsters that contains some Parisian flavor will enjoy this volume. After reading this story, it would not be surprising if young people would want to plan a trip of their own.  I recommend this delightful 5-star book for children, and those who read to them. I’d like to thank the author for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required, or influenced, to give anything but an honest appraisal.

This book is perfect for children of all ages! Easy to understand and fun to read aloud with the kids. :) The vibrant illustrations and consistent rhyming scheme keep it interesting and very educational throughout. Anthony and Lulu are absolutely adorable together, and their story is impossible not to fall in love with! Can't wait for the next Anthony book to come out - I want to read about his next adventure abroad! :)
