Two Bad Ants
Two Bad Ants is a favorite read aloud from my days teaching 2nd grade. What bad could happen when two little ants decide to detour from their mission to retrieve crystals for the queen? Turns out...quite a lot! Packed to the brim with amazing illustrations that are not quite what they seem in quintessential Chris Van Allsburg fashion.
This book lends itself to plenty of opportunities to make inferences and read between the lines. Have your young reader try and discover what the pictures really show versus what the ants believe they see. Recommended for ages 6 and up.
