This was a quick, enjoyable read that children will enjoy. It has some cool pictures and fun facts, sprinkled with a bit of humor from the author. I did learn one new thing. I did not know there was an actual name for the person who stories ants. (Mymecologist). I thought entomologist covered it. Interesting fact for me.

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Enjoyable book about ants. I learned something. I was amazed by how many ant species there are. I was freaked by the head on shots of ants. Kind of ugly. Great read though for children 4-8. ( )

I received this book through librarything.com.

This is a hard one to review. It is a cool book with lots of facts and kids will probably love it. One omission is ants defending their territory.

The photos are great. But three of the photos are mislabeled - the critters shown with the ants are scale, not aphids.

There is only one photo credit in the entire book which makes me suspicious about where the photos are from. The photo on page "Exploitation" is offered for sale (correctly labeled as scale insect) on http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photography-weaver-ant-scale-insect-image2596685...

Buying photos is fine, of course, but the source should be listed. ( )
