Ant and Honey Bee: A Pair of Friends at Halloween presents readers with yet another winning set of beginning reader buddies. As always, the different personalities balance each other out. And, while Ant and Honey Bee do not have the friction between them that some other pairs have, they make for a great read. Although the book is in chapters, it can be read from cover to cover at story time or bed time and finished before eyelids start drooping - the reader's or the listener's!
