Welcome to the world of the little ant. This exciting book collection offers fun adventures and new discoveries for children ages 3-8. Little Ant picture books use bright colors, bold images, and easy-to-read rhyming words to tell the stories kids love to hear. Silly humor and a wild imagination bring these tales to life. I hope you enjoy my stories!
Check out this really fun podcast interview! We talked about my journey as an author and illustrator, how/when my Little Ant series began, and the inspiration behind my new book Little Ant & the Epic Battle. Enjoy!
Ilene Dudek, an experienced copywriter in the advertising industry, honed her writing skills working at a New York City ad agency and later, writing for Movado Group. Although the corporate world was rewarding, nothing compared to time well spent with her two beautiful, fun-loving boys. Ilene eventually saw the opportunity to change her path and follow her dreams. She now writes and hand draws a Little Ant children's series, inspired by her sons who are always on the go and looking for the next big adventure! Ilene has participated in over 30 local author events, including a book signing at Barnes & Noble, and has been featured on "Spotlight New Jersey" - News 12 New Jersey. She plans to continue writing her Little Ant series and sharing her books with the local community.
My Author Visit Story Time is a fun and interactive event. It includes a reading of my new book followed by several Little Ant games to help bring the story to life. Children will use their imaginations, create new adventure scenes, act like characters in my books, test their memory and listening skills, and have lots of fun along the way!
