This book is fun, cute and educational. It uses music as a way to educate small children how to count. It is catchy and easy to follow. For those who don't know the melody, there is a music sheet at the front and at the back of the book. It's a melody that we all know and remember from our child hood and it's fun to see this in a book put to music this way.

I would recommend this book for children from the ages 2-4. This book is a good opportunity to have fun learning how to read and count with y

This book is a delightful reading version of the classic song "The Ants go marching". Aligning with the lyrics, the illustration delineates the ants go marching one by one, two by two, etc and how the little one stopped to tie the shoes, or ride on the bees, etc. This book can be used for teaching number counting. Also as the little ones in this book refers to younger ones, the teacher can expand this as an activity to spot youngest children in one group.

I enjoyed this book because may family use to sing this song when I was little. Anytime we would go hiking, we would hike in a line and march to the same beat and on step with each other and sing this song. However, the version we sang was slightly different from this one. We would take turns making up things that rhymed with the number of ants we were on. It was a fun way to liven up our hike and get creative too.

This was a super cute book! I actually didn't know all the words to this song! I liked how the first little ant was always the one doing the things that rhymned with the numbers. It was so funny. In addition, there was a little side comedy going on with the any carrying the number 5. Each page, the number five ant was struggling with pushing his number up the hill. It made me laugh!!

This is a cute book, because you can see more into a life of an ant. Cute pictures, but I honestly could see it being better.

You get to sing along (there's the music in the back of the book) as the ants go marching out of the rain. The little ant stops to tie his shoe, or play an instrument, etc. until they enter the hill and get out of the rain.

There are many "counting songs" from which to choose. If you don't have this version use another or simply sing it without a book prop. We just went up to "the ants go marching three by three" with today's theme of "three-dom"

This is a great book to help student learn how to count or become more confident in counting. Not only does it provide counting, it brings in a song/story for kids to possibly help remember their numbers better.

My daughter enjoys this book and says that it's funny. She especially likes what the little one does as well as singing the whole book (this is MY favorite part!).
This is a great counting book for young readers. It is similar to the song that I learned, so it is likely that students will be familiar with the words already.

I love books that go along with songs. Children can always latch onto them that much easier.
