PreS. A collection of poems about animals and a story about a journey through the jungle to hunt for them. The search begins as a small group of ants marches off from their hill early in the morning. A verse then introduces each creature as encountered, until the end of the day when all of the animals are ready to sleep. As an added bonus, each poem gives a little information about the animal described. A nice rhythm is established and maintained. An occasional line is awkward, but overall the book reads well. The illustrations are equally playful and eye-catching. Done in oils, each one is bright, bold, and inviting, but totters on the brink of being cute. Large, double-page spreads make the animals easily seen from a distance, but children who view the pictures up close will delight in finding some of the ants on each page. An entertaining selection with lively illustrations and a format suitable for storytimes.?Dawn Ibey, Vancouver Public Library, Canada

From its zebra-striped endpapers to its goofily grinning fauna, this picture book is a storytime all by itself. -- Bulletin of the Center for Childrens Books, September 1997

Mesmerized. The pages are colorful, the rhymes are fun and tuney. I ADORE these books. Ever time I turned the page she will open up her eyes to take in all the colors and I would watch her eyes dart from side to side to see the pictures. Then would babble something about the picture.. then would want to turn to the next page. I love love LOVE how each page I turn the colors are a little bit different, the scenery is different so there is a nice contrast been the page you are on and to the next. There is also a 'dark' page towards the end of the book where it is night time, she loves this page too (also in the other two books) I truely recommendd this book its amazing. It IS a little short but for a toddler whos attention span is limited its fabulous!
Read this to your child. Give each animal his own voice. If you can't, call me on speakerphone and I'll read it to them.
Every child should own this book.
Pay attention to the first page of the book- you will see an ants walking out of their ant hill then on each page through out the book you will see thoes ants climbing around on various parts of the page (ie a leaf on the tree). I made it a game for my son to find the ants on each page and he loved it!
