Two Bad Ants (Chris Van Allsburg)

Chris Van Allsburg is probably one of my most favorite picture book authors. His books are mysterious, entertaining, and a delight to read to children. I've reviewed it in the past. Never hurts to talk about it again!

I read Two Bad Ants to my class today during library time. It was so funny to see them start to clue the idea that the ants, thinking they were gathering up magic crystals of some sort, had actually come across a sugar bowl. They laughed and laughed through all the antics of the ants.

This would be a great story to use when teaching perspective.

The Goodreads summary says:

The three-time Caldecott medalist tells the tale of two ants who decide to leave the safety of the others to venture into a danger-laden kitchen.
