Who is your best friend?  Andy’s best friend is a boy named Joey.  I know, it sounds a bit strange.  It’s not too common for a fourth grade ant and a fourth grade boy to be best friends. Andy and his family live in an underground...

The Andy Ant adventure stories were started in my young daughter’s dark bedroom when she was about ready to go to sleep. How can you use this time to instill values, teach lessons of life, reinforce right behavior, or just have a fun bonding experience...

What started as fun bedtime stories in 1975 for my daughter when she was almost three years old has resulted in a series of wonderful children’s books.

One night as I was telling my daughter a story just before she was to go to sleep, I started with a familiar beginning:  “Once upon a time, there was an ant…”  My daughter interrupted me with a question:  “Daddy, what was his name?”  I thought to myself for a moment, “What rhymes with ant?” The next word I said was, “Andy.”  That was all she needed.
