Dickey, Eric Wayne, ill. By Abbey Paccia Alex the Ant Goes to the Beach. Craigmore Creations, 2014. PICTURE BOOK.
When Alex the ant goes to the beach as a scout for the first time, he sees that the beach has more excitement and dangers than he could’ve ever imagined. Will he be up to the task?
The text is a little long for a picture book, but the illustrations are well-done, detailed, and colorful. The text and the pictures complement each other well and do a great job of telling the story despite its length. A fun read aloud for a little bit older age or for those who are interested in ant life. EL (K-3). OPTIONAL. Reviewer: Jessica Moody, Library Media Specialist, Olympus Jr. High.
