A song in which an ant pleads with the kid who is tempted to squish it.
This book definitely makes you think from a different perspective (that of an ant!), but I didn’t love the illustrations and the book felt a bit moralizing to me. This one is probably worth hauling out for a lesson on empathy, but I would prefer not to read it very often.
