The ants are marching through the rain, but there is always something to distract Little Ant! Can you find him on each page, even though the column of ants gets bigger? Can you count the ants on each page? Rows of ants help introduce the concept of repeated addition.
A highly interactive book full of colour. The children enjoyed listening to the story and then delighted in singing the song at the end of the book. This die-cut book with holes is excellent for encouraging observation, colour and pattern recognition by searching for individual ants. It is also an excellent way to help children develop and understanding of quantities represented by the numerals 1 through to ten.—Nursery Education Plus - Sharon Campbell
