    I liked this book because I liked the part when max ate the ants. I also liked this book because I like mini homes.

    Imagine you’re opening a present for your birthday and you suddenly realize you got a bunch of ants for your present. According to Stephen Manes, this could happen.The story begins when Adam got a craziest birthday gift, a bunch of ants! Adam decides to become an expert on insects. Adam’s older brother, Max, is determined to get the best of Adam and tell him that people really do eat chocolate covered-ants. But Adam still doesn’t believe Max, that’s how the two brothers start this horrible bet! What could the bet be? Would you believe that Max really made “chocolate covered-ants” and really ate them? To be honest, it’s true, but that wasn’t all the terrible troubles that happened!When Max invented the “chocolate covered-ants”, he accidentally made a huge mistake. The milky chocolate bar and the dead ants in the bag came out from the plastic bag and made their mom’s oven a BIG mess!! That’s the funniest part!! Because he keep wanted Adam to win, he accidentally gets into a bigger trouble!You’ll meet a lot of people just like these two brothers. This book can help you don’t be too pushy when you want to beat other people.Also, the author doesn’t want you to do something like this after you read this book. The two brothers have a lesson for you too. Sometimes when you want to win too much, you go too far. If you do, you’re going to lose everything and get into bigger trouble!! I think this is really an awesome children book, I think it should be required reading for all people in the whole world. Especially the people who always want to be better than someone else. Believed me, as soon as you read it, you’ll start meeting people like the two brothers in your life. Let’s just hope you are not one of the brothers!

    There was this kid named Adam. He was turning 8 and from his aunt he got an ant farm. So, he sends in the form for the ants. When they come in (this is where it gets interesting), his brother, Max (the whole story is from his perspective.) says that people in the world eat chocolate covered ants. So they bet thirteen dollars on it. Whoever told mom it would lose. So Max made chocolate covered ants and he ate them. He ate them in front of Adam, and Max said he won. Then he reminded him that more than one person had to eat them (because that he knew that his brother was stupid to eat them). So he was showing them during class, and he got caught. When he did, him and his friend, Larry, had to eat some in the front of the class. When he gets, home, his brother crushes the rest of the ants, and then desert time rolls around. Max makes desert for the two of them, and puts another half scoop of ice cream in a bowl and also in the same bowl scraps of the chocolate ants! Adam eats them, but by that time, the bet was off.This was a good book because it had a lot of fast action in it and that is what I like in books, fast paced action and/or adventure. That is in any type of book I read. A also liked this book because it was very humorous to me with the chocolate ants and I think that is pretty cool. I can not see myself eating a single chocolate covered ant in my whole life (except for a bet that is at least ten dollars), even though they do it a lot in this fictional story.

    1) I like this book because I also like to bet with my siblings and cousins. On page 8 it says that Max tells his brother Adam that there was something called chocolate ants. Max said that there is something called chocolate ant and I bet you! Also another connection is when I bet and the thing isn’t real I have to find a way for it to be real; like Max had to do on page 9/10 etc. 2) I would also like recommend this book to my cousin Mory because he always wants to bet with someone. For example, just last week he wanted to bet on a show. And he always wants to bet when he doesn’t have money.3) One of my challenges in this book was the way they talked. I thought it was easy and read too fast and got jumbled up in my read. Then I knew that I had to re-read to understand the book. After having that encounter I now know to read at a good rate and to read carefully.4) The character I would like to describe is Max (the main character).Max is like the “I’ve got to be right” kind of guy. I say that because he knew that there was no one to eat chocolate covered ant and nowhere to get it. So instead he put chocolate on the floor to attract ants. And when he did he put it in the microwave, and ate it.

    When Max’s little brother Adam gets an ant colony from their Aunt Fran for his birthday, he is ecstatic; so much so that in Max’s eyes its an obsession. When Max starts teasing Adam that ants are delicious eaten, Max soon finds himself making a $13.00 bet with his little brother that people do indeed eat ants (not just Max himself, but also other people). Max is determined to win the bet as he eats ants microwaved in chocolate, and tries to get his friends to do the same in front of Adam. The all-out war that ensues is hilarious, all the way to end. A very fast read, this would make a nice, creepy-crawly booktalk companion to How to Eat Fried Worms, for 4th-5th grade (especially reluctant readers).In this second installment of the Tillerman saga (following Homecoming), Dicey, her sister Maybeth, and her brothers James and Sammy find a new home with their grandmother. They deal with the struggle of adjusting to a new life in Chesapeke Bay, as well as the death of their mother, who had abandoned the children the previous summer. This is a heartwarming, moving story that can be read aloud, or booktalked to 5th grade and up.

    Big surprise, I remember liking it better when I was younger. The sibling relationship is still pretty dead on though.

    Chocolate Covered Ants is a very easy read, as we read it as a read aloud in 5th grade. It is pretty good, but the book is pretty slow, which is not my style.
