Hi All

Anyone recommend a good Introduction to Ant Keeping book I can get Jack for Christmas, or rather ask Santa to get Jack for Christmas. Would prefer a book rather than an e-book, to many other distraction once he's on his ipad.

Thanks in advance

I am not aware of an ant keeping book but I have around 5-6 books on ants and a couple mention keeping ants for research/for interest and show some methods. The best methods in my opinion are found online as the books are old.

Anthony, I understand the sort of thing Jack wants: A coloured book with photos, diagrams and instructions.
If you go to Amazon & eBay and search "Ant Keeping" and look in the Minibeasts series, I think you'll find the sort of thing he would like.
Even if he soon grows beyond it, it should give a useful grounding.

I saw a text book which tempted me (Bruce) ! :-)
