Anthony Ant Goes To Egypt by Julie Bettendorf

Anthony Ant Goes to Egypt by Julie BettendorfI think most kids will love the illustrations in this one. They're vibrant, bold, catchy, and tell the story well.

The story itself is written in poem form and I did have a bit of a problem with this. I love rhyming stories but this one doesn't flow very well. The rhythm is off and the wording sounds a tad clumsy. In my opinion, a simple non-rhyming story would have been more effective. 

But it's a cute story!

Many thanks to the author who provided me with a free book to review.
