One Hundred Hungry Ants Kindle Edition
One hundred hungry ants march off single file to sample a picnic, but when the going gets too slow, they divide into two rows of fifty, then four rows of twenty-five . . . until they take so long that the picnic is gone!
“The unexpected pairing of sophisticated art and light-hearted text lends this book particular distinction.” —Publishers Weekly
“The illustrations . . . use a pleasing palette and energetic lines to depict ants with highly individual characters.” —Horn Book
"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.

“We’re going to a picnic!
A hey and a hi dee ho!”
A couple days ago, ants invaded our kitchen from all fronts. From under cabinets, through little cracks between the molding and floor, and through the window they marched with purpose, having discovered a bounty of crumbs and sticky spills.
I went to war.
The battle lasted the entire day and I showed no mercy. I sprayed a little, mopped a lot, cleaned cabinets and ran to the store for twelve of the most powerful ant traps I could buy. All the while, I kept thinking about this children’s book, One Hundred Hungry Ants. We read it many times to our kids when they were younger and were just learning the early concepts of math.
One hundred ants head out to a picnic, marching in a row. The littlest ant thinks they are “moving way too slow” and he has an idea. So begins the math lesson embedded in this cute story about sets of ten and grouping. It’s a nice story that introduces math in a fun way. Will the ants reach the picnic in time? Curl up with your little one and have a look. And if there’s no food at the picnic, I’m sure the ants will find something in our kitchen!
I just did not like how the ants did not get any food in the end and were angry at the littlest ant.... I would have preferred them to have found lots of leftover crumbs to carry home for each of them.
