One Hundred Angry Ants


Ants are always ready to have fun at a picnic. In this book, 100 hungry ants march off to a picnic, but one of the ants decides it would be better to go in 2 rows of
50… or 4 rows of 25… or 5 rows of 20… or 10 rows of 10!  The ants spend a lot of time lining up, so by the time they get to the picnic there is nothing left to eat.
