An ant article ran in seven affiliated newspapers in Maryland and Delaware with grand quotes from ANTvisory Board member, Patty Dean, director of Early Childhood Education at Salisbury University.
“The book just capitalizes on so many things,” said Patty Dean, director of Early Childhood Education at Salisbury University. “There’s the science aspect: Why do we have so many insects and what would happen if none of them got killed? There’s the social justice perspective: What is the point of killing a living creature? There’s a part in the book where the boy’s friends urge him to kill the ant, so we talk about making decisions for yourself, and your own conscience.”
