One Hundred Hungry Ants is not only a spirited and whimsical picture book story, it also serves as a fun visual introduction to math.
Hi dee ho! It's off to a picnic we go!
One hundred very hungry ants hurry to sample the delights of a picnic, but marching in a single file seems too slow for 100 empty stomachs.
The smallest ant of all suggests they travel in two rows of 50, four rows of 25 . . . and the division begins.
In five-star reviews, both teachers and parents report enjoying this book. As one put it: My four-year-old loves this book! It has a silly cute repetitive song, and teaches about division and multiplication.
