The train tracks ran right by Bigmama's house in Cottondale, and the children were warned to stay off the tracks. But one night they were late, and the tracks were a shortcut, so they started off. And when there was no turning back, they heard the train coming.

This is one of the best books I've seen for the kindergarten and first grade crowd. Language skills, moral of the story, why to follow rules, and so much more! My children loved it and asked that I read it to their class!!!!

This is a fabulous book to use as a way to teach young children about good writing. There are lessons to be learned about sound words (onomatopoeia), using all capitals to emphasize a moment, creating tension and suspense, memoire, using the ellipsis (those three dots...) to make the reader pause, and MUCH more! I highly recommend this book!
