This is a great story that makes a perfect read aloud. It can be read to all ages, and used as a mentor text or for opening up discussions.
The story features a boy about to stomp on an ant. He and the ant end up discussing the different perspectives of their lives. This would be great to read to older students as you open up a discussion about tolerance, getting to know people who are different from yourselves, or other diversity topics. This could also be used as a mentor text when teaching a writing lesson on perspective.
The ending is ambiguous, so as a read aloud with younger children, you can talk about how they would like the story to end, and why they feel that way. They could even write their own ending.
A great book that is entertaining and educational.
