Not mighty in size, but mighty in resourcefulness and industry, the ant has crawled the earth since prehistoric times. It has dwelt in rain-forest tree trunks and acorns of oak trees, beneath logs, and under sidewalks. It has protected forests by capturing insects, cleared weeds away from acacia trees, and by growing gardens has released important nutrients into the soil. Seed-lifters, dirt-diggers, social beings, ants have the most advanced brain of all insects! So watch where you step, especially on a warm day: a small but mighty ant may be underfoot.

Charles Micucci’s other books with Houghton Mifflin include The Life and Times of the Honeybee and The Life and Times of the Peanut. He lives in New York City.From Booklist:
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 scepter). Overall, the presentation is informative, stimulating, and attractive, with just enough humor to reel in the intended audience. A good choice for report writers and for browsers. Kay Weisman
