Ant's Diary A Year in My Life by Steve Parker

A Year in My Life. Have you ever wondered what it is like to be an ant - well, read this special book and find out! In her own words, Ant describes her busy life underground and the exciting adventures that she and her sisters have when they venture out of their nest. The diary format introduces youngsters to the true wonders of the natural world in an entertaining way. You can watch the ant meet her huge Queen mother, help to feed the grubs, fight off a beetle attack, and beware of the egg-stealing spiders! I have a few minutes to spare, so I can begin my diary at last. Here are a few facts about me, my ant sisters and my friends. Ants are tiny. Ants' brains are even tinier. We don't have much room for learning, but we are born knowing all we need to know - which is, how to work. All ants work very hard. We love it. Work is all we do and all we want to do. There's no time for playing. By the time l've worked, eaten and rested, it's time to work again - YIPPEE! I found all this out from 'Old Ant', our oldest and wisest sister, who knows EVERYTHING! She let me nibble some pages out of a book she found, which explains it all. l've stuck some of the pages in my diary, and there are also illustrations by Tim Hayward, Robin Carter and Adam Stower - they've been working hard too. Right, rest period over. I'm on duty again. Back to work - HOORAY!
