Review

"A first-time author and illustrator are off to an impressive start in this spirited story . . . The unexpected pairing of sophisticated art and light-hearted text lends this book particular distinction." Publishers Weekly

A rhyming text describes the progress of one hundred ants marching toward a picnic. To travel faster, one ant suggests dividing into two lines of fifty, then four lines of twenty-five, and finally ten lines of ten. Their frantic reorganization takes so long that the picnic is gone by the time they arrive. The illustrations, which look like linoleum cuts, use a pleasing palette and energetic lines to depict ants with highly individual characters.

My kindergartener and I were talking about money, one day, and he volunteered that he'd learned that ten dimes make a dollar when his kindergarten teacher read "One Hundred Hungry Ants". This book has no discussion of money, but it teaches that 100 equals 2 times 50, 4 times 25, 5 times 20, and 10 times 10, just the right lesson for him at that time. The rhythm of the rhyming works pretty well, and the pictures are very clever, adding a lot of enjoyment to the story. This one is worth reading again and again, if that's the kind of child you have.

There may be many books about math, but I have yet found any that go beyond 10 or sometimes 20. I found this book interesting, fun and quite beautiful with its slate blue muted tones. I thought the graphics where so calming. The added bonus was my 7 year old daughter enjoyed the book and wanted to read it over and over!

I use this book every year with my first graders and they love it! They think the illustrations are funny, they eagerly predict how the ants will divide their lines next, they want to hear it read more than once (Read it again! Pleeeese Miss B?) The children also like to take it off the shelf in the classroom library and share/discuss the story later with a friend. This is one of my favorite math books, not only because it teaches a concept but also because it makes kids laugh!

Waiting to give a presentation to my daughter's 5th grade class, I spotted ONE HUNDRED HUNGRY ANTS on display in the library and had enough time to read it and loved it! I wrote down the title and returned to my office to order additional copies. One for me and one for my vice president. But not for the fabulous graphics or the math concepts. Rather this story also has a "strategic business" spin...at least I was able to draw that interpretation. In fact, because of my mind-set, I saw this story as a great example of what can happen when leadership and strategic focus are not strong! While you may eventually get to your destination, will it be in time to reap the desired outcomes and rewards of your plan? Or will the continual process checking and redirection ultimately became a roadblock to success. The same can be true in many life and business situations. It's a message that I found particularly relevant and clearly presented in a fun and enjoyable format.

What a wonderful tool for teaching multiplication, division, and grouping strategies! The ants march in 1 group of 100, 2 groups of 50, 4 groups of 25, etc. This book is useful and enjoyable for all elementary classrooms. Students love modeling the ants' groups, drawing new patterns, and even writing a new (happier) ending for the story.
