Anthony Ant Goes to France by Julie Bettendorf
Join Anthony Ant as he travels around the world!
Hi, my name is Anthony Ant, and I love to go places.
When I travel, I can fit into some pretty small spaces.
Once I curled up in a suitcase, as snug as could be.
When I came out, I was in beautiful France. Whoopee!
These are the tales of Anthony Ant, a child's travel companion and all-around great adventurer. Anthony travels in style, comfortably lodged in a suitcase, and he never knows what strange, new country he will find himself in.
In Anthony Ant Goes to France, he travels to Paris, where he meets Lulu Ladybug. Together they explore the food, culture and sights of the city. Anthony visits the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral, eats French pastry, and gets to know the French people, all with his new friend Lulu. (taken from Amazon description)
I really enjoyed reading this book. I learned about some of the famous landmarks in France. It was easy to read, with the story written in a poetic form. The pictures were bright and caught my attention rather easily. I think this book would be great for story time so that children will sample a taste of what France has to offer without over-stimulating the mind of its young readers or listeners. I would happily read all of the Anthony Ant books!
