When a group of young children learn about the holiday of Lag B'Omer, Ari the playground ant wants to join in too. But the eager little ant ends up biting into a plastic cookie, being covered in sand, and stepping in a puddle of glue! Finally he gets to enjoy the best of what the holiday offers--Torah stories, picnics, and a campfire with friends.
An author's te at the end explains the origins of Lag B'Omer. Amidst a period of mourning it is a day of joy, celebrating the values of Torah learning and perseverance in the face of obstacles.
