Book Description Report this book

Hallie the harvester ant is the daughter of the queen. She holds a very important position as lead scout who provides food for the entire colony. While out on a scout the ants find themselves in a field being plowed over by tractors that has nearly destroyed their harvesting grounds. While trying to escape, Hallie falls into an old ant den deep underneath the ground where she is now lost and alone in a maze of dark, unfamiliar tunnels. Hallie's desperate attempts to find an escape lead only to dead-end tunnels. Hallie lies down to cry, giving up hope of ever finding her way out. Does Hallie quit when all seems hopeless or does she gather her courage to conquer the unknown? This is a story of being brave and never, ever giving up.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Ladene Mayville

I have a B.S. from Ohio State University. I am a mom to 3 grown sons; and I have 6 cats and 3 lovely dogs--all rescues! I love the wonder of nature and animals, and the endless possibilities of human imagination. I am a children's book author and my first book, 'Hallie the Harvester Ant: Never Give Up,' was inspired by true events experienced while unemployed. Despite our hardships and fears we can't lose our courage but we must be determined to keep going no matter what fearful circumstances we face. Don't Quit. Don't Give Up. Don't let go of your dreams!
