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!!!!

"Shortcut" by Donald Crews is about a group of children that decide to take different way home from school. As they walk along the train tracks night befalls them. A train is heard in the distance and the children scramble to get out of the way. The book is exciting and read like a moving picture.

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!
