This was a cute short book, that my children loved. It was quickly added to be one of the favorites bedtime stories. I also enjoyed the puns. As a mother I really like how the word ant was in red font while the rest of the words were in black. It really help my 4 year old able to recognize the word ant. We will definitely be reading more books by this author.

A little red ant with big dreams! This was a cute and funny read. I would definitely recommend it for any kids that are looking for a fun action-packed book that covers the themes of friendship and teamwork!

This book is so cute! It’s got a cute ant and a fun story. My child is two so he’s still just into the pictures, but that’s okay with me. I can see this being a hit with kids because of the content, along with the fun aspect of the story. It’s just really adorable and awesome. I like the repetition of the word ant because then a child can identify the word and help become interactive with the story. I think this story is fun for all ages!

A cute, fun little story about a little ant living for his dreams and trying hard to convince everyone around that his dreams will come true as long as he keeps trying and believes in himself. Love the amazing illustrations. I wish the cover illustrations were a little different. The book is amazing nevertheless. Thank you, publisher and author/artist, for the advance reader copy.

Rock Red I read this book with my 4 year old. He enjoyed the story a lot. He really enjoyed that the word ant was in red when it was in different words. He found this very amusing and it helped him to break down the words further to read correctly himself. The picture are also brilliant and really make the story come to life more especially for young children. I would highly recommend this book for key stage 1 children. Having the facts at the end was brilliant also as this helped expand upon knowledge for both adults and children alike.

Cute, interactive read-along with a message of pursuing your dreams and how to accept help from others. Pictures are colorful and provide opportunities for games of "I spy". Science facts are embedded in the text and summarized again at the end of the book. Readers can try to find all the hidden embedded red "ant"s and then check whether they found them all on a website. A creative take on interactive readers for kids aged 4-7.

A cute and sweet book about a red ant. Wonderful for kids to read just before bedtime. Highly recommended!

This was really cute and heartwarming! Perfect and enjoyable read especially for kids. The determination of the main character to pursue what he wants is something that I consider inspirational yet not everybody has the option to do for some reasons. This book tackles different themes like dreams, friendship, and kindness. It's good that Red, our main character, has these qualities especially the courage to share to the world the talent he has for music. He is indeed a role model that I can see kids will love and remember. These reasons make me aspire more to be like him. Don't do this to me, Red. I'm assessing my choices again.

This book is absolutely adorable! I love books about music, and this little book combines both music and a positive message of love and kindness. I especially enjoyed all of the "ant"s throughout the book. Very clever! It is a sweet and fun book for kids and music-loving adults alike.

This is a cute book for children. Little Ant really does have big dreams, great for children to read about. The illustrations are lovely and colourful and there are plenty of puns for the parents, always a nice touch. I also liked the way ANT was in red throughout as it helps children to pick out the word easily. The fun facts at the end were also great. Entertaining and recommended!
