Item Description...
When a little boy sets out to squish an ant, the trembling ant pleads for his life, in a playful story about ethics and peer pressure. By the illustrator of Riddleightful.

Publishers Description
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? That's 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?
“What a great book! Phil Hoose and his daughter Hannah are carrying on the tradition of Dr. Seuss.” --Pete Seeger

“By giving us the ant's point of view, this delightful little book may help change our own.” --E.O. Wilson

“Hey, Little Ant is the perfect tool to help inspire compassion in our world's youth, and has a positive message for grown-ups, too! Please share this book and its lessons with your family today.” --Jane Goodall

“As a counselor, I get excited about teaching values and character education to my middle school students. While searching for resources on this topic, I found a masterpiece for classroom guidance in the illustrated picture book Hey, Little Ant…a terrific tool for fostering tolerance and respect for diversity in children of all ages.”--Barbara Gruener, counselor, Friendswood, Texas, as seen in Teaching Tolerance magazine

KID: Hey, little ant down in the crack,
Can you hear me? Can you talk back?
See my shoe, can you see that?
Well, now it's gonna squish you flat!

ANT: Please, oh please, do not squish me,
Chang e your mind and let me be,
I'm on my way with a crumb of pie,
Please, oh please, don't make me die!

great book for kids  Aug 27, 2008
We used this book for summer reading this summer which was to catch a reading bug. It is a fun book to read out loud esp if you can do voices for the charaters. I would recommend the book .
I loved it but...  Aug 1, 2007
I loved this book and the intention the author had to encourage children to consider the moral of the story. Also for a children's book it is well written with amusing rhymes. The kids also loved hearing this story. The only problem was this - they got absolutely the wrong message from it!

The book presents two arguments - the ant pleading for its life, and the boy who questions the value of the ant's life. But the author wrote the boy's side of the story so pleasingly that my kids far more enjoyed siding with the boy than with the ant, despite explanation, to my complete despair! My young listeners were quite young, ages 2-3, so perhaps this book would be better for a slightly older child.
great story  May 16, 2007
This is the best book! I use it in my Kindergarten classroom when we do a thematic unit on bugs. We act out the story then talk about the ending.
Teaches Empathy  Nov 30, 2006
I am a 3rd grade teacher, and I use this book in my classroom to teach about bullying, peer pressure (the boy's friends are encouraging him to squish the ant), and empathy. My students love it! I wish I could find a poster of the page where the ant is looming over the boy and asking "If you were me, and I were you, what would you want me to do?" What an incredible lesson for kids! The best part is that the book ends with the shoe looming over the ant and leaves the ending up to the reader. Kids love writing (or just inventing) their own endings! GREAT BOOK!
Hey, Little Ant  Jan 12, 2006
This is an excellent book about an ant who has to convince a boy why he should not squish him with his shoe. It sends a wonderful message to children that you should treat others how you would want to be treated. This rhyming text is very comical to read and the illustrations are excellent. It is a wonderful book for elementary students!
