Product Description:

Gr. 1-4. This companion to The Life and Times of the Honeybee (1995) and The Life and Times of the Peanut (1997) offers succinct text and an impressive amount of information presented in an attractive, picture-book format. Micucci discusses the longevity of this species, communication techniques, social structure of the colony, body parts, habitats, variety among ants, and the species' role in recycling. Topics are presented on illustrated double-page spreads comprising a main block of text and numerous, captioned illustrations. Most of the artwork is realistic, although the author anthropomorphizes in a few drawings (an ant wearing a hard hat drives a front loader; the ant queen wears a crown and carries a sceptre). Overall, the presentation is informative, stimulating, and attractive, with just enough humour to reel in the intended audience. A good choice for report writers and for browsers. Kay Weisman
