About The Book:
Join Anthony Ant as he travels around the world! Hi, my name is Anthony Ant, and I love to go places. When I travel, I can fit into some pretty small spaces. Once I curled up in a suitcase, as snug as could be. When I came out, I was in beautiful France. Whoopee! These are the tales of Anthony Ant, a child's travel companion and all-around great adventurer. Anthony travels in style, comfortably lodged in a suitcase, and he never knows what strange, new country he will find himself in. In Anthony Ant Goes to France, he travels to Paris, where he meets Lulu Ladybug. Together they explore the food, culture, and sights of the city. Anthony visits the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral, eats French pastry, and gets to know the French people, all with his new friend Lulu.
I just loved this book. There are so many reasons why this story stood out to me but the first was the illustrations. They are so detailed and creative, some of the best I've seen recently among the books I've reviewed. Another aspect of this book that I liked was how informative the story was about France. It was also informative in a way that did not bore or lose the attention of my children. I really appreciated how the wording on each page wasn't lengthy, the illustrations told so much of the story that the story line could be kept simple, which is essential when keeping a younger audience's attention. This was a fun and educational book!
