For a little ant like Anthony, learning to become a worker for his colony is a BIG job! Like many new learners, Anthony is excited to begin his journey, but soon finds that obstacles along the way make him feel like giving up. Luckily, Anthony remembers what his father taught him about having a “non-quitting spirit” and uses this positive attitude to conquer his frustration and achieve his goal!


This story allows young readers to follow Anthony on his journey to find food. As he encounters obstacles and feels frustration, readers discover the power of having a “non-quitting spirit!” When Anthony gets stuck, readers remind him, “Don’t stop...no matter what!” When Anthony finally achieves his goal, readers celebrate his victory and come away having learned an important lesson about never giving up!
