Abstract
This book is 6 x 8½ and has 24 pages. The illustrations were painted with watercolor. The story is well told. Text and illustrations make for a lively telling of the fable. There is no ultimate resolution here. The last word is the ant's statement There's a time for play, and a time for work. One nice touch is the contrasted use of rainy days on 14-15: for making up songs and for storing food, respectively. Perhaps the best image is on 22-23 and again on the front cover: the confrontation at the door of the ant's home. This book is the third that I have from Picture Window Books and the second, with The Fox and the Grapes, on the Yellow Level. Reinforced library binding. I am not sure why the books in the Read-it! Readers series are often so expensive!
