What Does An Anteater Eat?


Anteater is hungry, but he has completely forgotten what anteaters eat. Baffled and with his tummy rumbling, he consults the other animals. But Sloth is too busy, Toucan is clueless, and Crocodile has his own mouth full. Maybe the ants will know – and maybe the answer isn’t quite as obvious as you may think! A delightfully silly tale that little ones will return to again and again.
