Book Review: The Ants Who Couldn’t Dance by Susan Rich Brooke

When the music starts playing, everyone can dance…except the ants. They can lift, build, and dig, so why can’t they twirl, dip, and jig? As the ants try to dance, they discover they are better together in this toe-tapping tale that shows the value of cooperation and teamwork.

Parents and children will laugh (and dance) along with this whimsically illustrated story that encourages creative problem-solving and inspires even the littlest among us to pursue big dreams.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the publisher. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

What a cute book! The ants really would like to learn how to dance, but they are unable to dance like any of the animals they ask for help. Finally, they realize that they can’t flip, twist, jig, clap, or twirl but when they work together, they can dance in their own way!

The illustrations are bright and colorful and I love how the characters are drawn! Each ant seems to have its own personality. And there are a lot of ants! The text rhymes and would be fun to read aloud.

The Ants Who Couldn’t Dance is fun book for children to read. They’ll laugh at the funny illustrations of the ants trying to dance, and I’m sure many kids will try the dance moves on their own. While having all this fun, they’ll also learn about teamwork and that sometimes many people working together is much better than one person trying to do something alone.
