I Don’t Like to Eat Ants follows two anteaters and the pros and cons about their diet of ants. Anteater Two insists it’s in their nature to only dine on ants, but Anteater One doesn’t like the taste and tells Anteater Two about the wonderful foods he’s tried and enjoyed more those little bugs. When Anteater One treats Anteater Two to a sandwich at the Peanut Butter and Jelly Deli, he too discovers he likes peanut butter and jelly, and decides to try more foods since he won’t know what he likes unless he is willing to take a chance.

My Review:

We all know someone who is a picky eater (not me!) .  Children, especially, tend to stick to favorite foods and balk at trying new things.  I Don't Like To Eat Ants is an amusing tale that encourages trying new foods.  Told in rhythmic form, this book follows two anteaters as they talk about the foods they eat.  Anteater 1, surprisingly, doesn't like to eat ants.  He is fond of all sorts of food.  Anteater 2 thinks ants are the one and only food staple that should be consumed.  The two hash it out, then meet up at Anteater 3's deli.  It's there that Anteater 2 becomes convinced that trying new foods isn't so bad after all. But he's not giving up on ants either!

I love the whimsical way this story is told and the illustrations of ants with their own thoughts dotted throughout the pages is amusing.  This book may open up discussion to your child trying new foods.  But, even if it doesn't, it's still a jolly story.
