One of my biggest passions is reading. I love to dive into the written word and become immersed into the world the writer has created.

Underpants for Ants

Underpants for Ants (Usborne Phonics Readers) - Russell Punter

Nan discovers freezing ants in her kitchen one cold wet winter's night. So, what would any sensible grandmother do?  Why knit them something to keep the warm! Nan knits her guests some sensible underpants to keep the tiny ants warm and soon her knitting business is taken by storm.  This book would be great for emergent readers as it focuses on phonics. I would recommend this book for kindergarten and first grade.  After reading the story as a class a good lesson would be to have the students draw and/or write depending on their level the sequence that events happen in the book and have each share what knitted item they would like if they were cold. 

Reading Level: Pre-K to 2nd grade
