Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
I was amazed when I read that ants have the largest brains of all insects. This is just one of the amazing facts a person can learn from reading this well-written nonfiction book. Do you know that some ants can fly? Nor only that, but instead of having one pair of wings, they have two. This short book is packed full with interesting details. For example, " Ants may make their colony inside the door of a house. Some people think this means that the home owner will be blessed with good luck." Every two pages begins a new chapter. One page is the text and the other is a beautiful photograph. This photograph not only adds interest, but also clarification. Words that are included in the glossary have been highlighted throughout the text. The vocabulary has been well chosen and is reader friendly. At the end of the book, there is a page that provides instructions on how to draw an ant using egg cartons. There is also a page that gives the reader suggested websites for additional information. This book is perfect for any child who is interested in insects and science. It should be in every classroom library and every school library. This book would be a perfect gift to give a child.
