What would you do if the ant you were about to step on looked up and started talking? Would you stop and listen? What if your friends saw you hesitate? Thats what happens in this funny, thought-provoking book. Originally a song by a father-daughter team, this conversation between two creatures, large and small, is bound to inspire important discussions. It might even answer that classic childhood question: To squish or not to squish?
