Hey, Little Ant by Philli and Hanah Hoose is a sweet story that was promoted by Reading Rainbow. I can understand why. It is such a cool story!
Have you ever walked along a path and wondered who you were stepping on? This boy noticed an ant on the sidewalk and the two of them started up a conversation.
The ant pleads with the boy to understand his importance to his colony and the boy talks to the ant about how small he is and how the boy could just squash him.
Read the book to find out the end and gain a new respect for the small creatures we usually don't even notice in our world.
