‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Joanna Rzezak
Age Range: 6-8
In 1001 Ants readers can discover the many different types of ants there are, from the worker ants, who come in different shapes and sizes, to the queen, who is the mother of all ants in the nest and the bigger Guard ants whose job it is to stop strangers coming into the nest. Find out what goes on inside an anthill, how all the ants have different jobs to do, what they eat and where their food is stored.
This charming, illustrated non-fiction picture book by Polish author and illustrator Joanna Rzezak provides lots of detail about the lives of ants. The text, translated from French, is lively and engaging and packed with fascinating facts, not just about ants but also about different types of mushrooms, leaves, insects, birds and mammals. The colourful detail in the artwork provides plenty to look at and there is also an ‘I Spy’ game challenging readers to find ‘Red Socks’ the little ant wearing bright red socks hidden throughout the pages.
This is an ideal book for parents and carers to share with young children and for teachers to introduce the natural world into the classroom. Look out for 1001 Bees (2021) also reviewed on the website.
