Staff Pick

He's the tiniest ant, but that doesn't stop him from getting his big, moist, yummy crumb back to the anthill. As a bonus, while reading this fun tale you'll learn a little Spanish along the way. The Little Red Ant and the Great Big Crumb is the perfect gift for a 4-8 year old.

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This distinctly Mexican version of an old fable found in Spain, Portugal, and France is retold and updated by a well-known storyteller. The little red ant has found a wonderful crumb, but she's not strong enough to carry it all the way home. Going from one creature to the next, asking for help, the little red ant is surprised to discover who is the strongest of all. Spanish words add to the text's Mexican flavor, and bold, playful illustrations, hinting at what's coming next, make this story a real "page-turner."
