Berenstains’ A Book

Stan and Jan Berenstain‘s silly book introduces readers to words that begin with A by following a trail of ants “across an apple and an acorn, across an apricot, an ax, and an angleworm” … all the way to an anteater and an anthill.  The anteater is busy tying on a napkin and preparing for a tasty treat, when CHOMP! — the ants take a bite on her tail, causing her to make a hasty retreat and leave their friends in peace.

Kids might need to be told that what appears to be physical violence — biting — only causes the anteater momentary discomfort because the ants are so small.  But they will certainly understand that animals don’t want to be eaten.

Ages 4-8.
