One Hundred Hungry Ants

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

Ages 5-8. Sniffing a whiff of picnic food in the air, 100 hungry ants march off in a long line. Soon the littlest ant orders a halt and organizes the troop into 2 lines to speed things up. Next they regroup into 4 lines of 25, then 5 lines of 20, then 10 lines of 10. But the reorganization wastes so much time that by the time the ants get to the picnic, the food's gone. The mismanaged and disgruntled ants react swiftly: "Ninety-nine ants were swarming / from each and every row, / in hot pursuit of one little ant, / who quickly turned to go." The outcome's predictable, but kids will enjoy the bouncy rhyme and the comical portrayal of the ants, while teachers will appreciate the entertaining demonstration of a math concept. The illustrations, which look like linocuts tinted with flat colors, have a distinctive style and a definite sense of humor. A pleasing book by two newcomers. ~--Carolyn Phelan
