Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
Did I enjoy this audio book: There is one word for this story: Adorable! The voice actors are dynamic, full of expression, and truly bring to life the smallest ant in the colony, Sid. The catchy musical soundtrack beautifully complements the elements of drama and suspense as the listener waits to discover the fate of Sid and the rest of the ant colony. Not only was the story entertaining, my 2-year-old was so interested he actually stayed silent for the entire 4 minute story and immediately asked to listen to it again (we did). The character of Sid is a great role model for small children – he demonstrates that even the smallest of creatures can make a big difference!
Would I recommend it: I sure would! We listened to it several times in the car and everyone enjoyed it. Any story that’s entertaining to adults and children (even after the 13th listen) gets 4 stars in my book.

About the audiobook – from Goodreads: It all began with an adventure about an ant called Sid. The music and story was already written as a college assignment but the story was developed further after we began to more seriously work on it. We recorded all of the characters voices ourselves which was very amusing and began to delve into the world of sound effects to try to create the whole atmosphere of the story.
