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 Donald Crews book had many words,. I enjoyed that the kids learned a lesson. This is helpful in my area where there are many train tracks.

All of my children have loved this book, so much so I've had to buy several replacement copies.

Some people criticize it for teaching a bed lesson (glorifying doing something dangerous and keeping secrets from adults), but what it does is perfectly capture a child's perspective of doing something wrong (and dangerous) and learning a lesson independent of adult input.

In case you are wondering (spoiler alert), the kids take a short cut on train tracks and almost get hit by a train.

Crews is at his best in this one with succinct sentences that are wonderful to read out loud, lots of action, and beautiful illustrations.

My grandson's school suggests that the student purchase a book for the school library on their birthday. This was on the recommended list. We read it before he took it to school and thoroughly enjoyed it together.

This book and pictures rode a train right through my heart!! Oh, but please don't tell Big Mama!

Ungall
A favorite! I’ve read it a hundred times to my little one. He had wide eyes each time.

Andronrad
It's not my favorite book to read aloud but the kids like it. I do like that it "shows" rather than "lectures" about the dangers of train tracks. It illustrates how suddenly a train comes and how little time there is to get out of the way.

A perennial winner! Donald Crews is so talented. My grandchildren noticed that the same train from "Freight Train" appears again here. An amazing story, breathless illustrations and fabulous lesson!

Cautionary tale about NOT taking shortcuts! Not in your face about it either! I love Donald Crews books! Your kiddos will enjoy the story, but not for very little ones (it may be a bit too scary.).

great purchase my students love it!
