My 22 year old, daughter, read I Don’t Like To Eat Ants to her class just the other day. The second graders loved it. They had a discussion about the book, and really enjoyed hearing Sarah read it. With just 29 pages, the lesson was a great one. She said the kids were still talking about it today.
My 8 year old, son, loved the book too. He has read it 3 times, over the last few weeks. He says he can’t get enough of the Anteaters. “Too cute!” he says.
“I don’t like to eat ants,” said Anteater One. “They don’t taste very good, and they tickle my tongue…”
Anteater One is one adventurous eater. He’ll try anything – a grilled cheese sandwich, a nice salad, or a chocolate cake – but he’s eaten his last ant. Anteater Two only wants ants to eat. Anteater Three has the perfect solution: a reservation at his world-famous Peanut Butter & Jelly Deli, where the anteaters can discuss the very important question of what to eat for lunch. Sabine Mielke’s beautiful, stylized illustrations accompany JTK Belle’s rhyming, laugh-out-loud text, in this charming, relatable, story with a timeless message about the importance of trying new things.
I Don’t Like To Eat Ants recommended age group is 2-6, but don’t tell my kids that. They loved it! If I can get them to read, that’s a bonus, and I Don’t Like To Eat Ants has made them enjoy reading.
