Kindergarten-Grade 1–These books attempt to give beginning readers easy text and simple story lines to practice their phonics and reading skills. In that respect, they are successful. However, the stories are pretty predictable and boring. Any child familiar with Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar (Philomel, 1981) will find Schmauss's book totally uninteresting. There are better pieces of literature on ants, as well. Each title includes a diagram of the featured insect with parts clearly indicated; a Fun Facts page, which has a higher reading level than the actual story; and a craft that can be found in many children's cookbooks and/or nature-related activity books. This is the type of book that kids consider school reading but not real reading. If teachers are looking for some practice texts, they might suffice, but they are not suitable for library collections.–Erlene Bishop Killeen, Fox Prairie Elementary School, Stoughton, WI
