About "What if Ants Wore Orange Pants"

“What if Ants Wore Orange Pants” was originally conceived as a gift book for the author’s grandsons. Starting as two illustrated prints given as baby gifts, it grew over several years into a complete alphabet book. 26 little rhymes for little readers make learning the alphabet as much fun for parents to read as for children to enjoy on their own.
