Shortcut by Donald Crews



FREE shipping on qualifying offers. 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. Donald Crews es el renombrado autor de dos libros merecedores del premio Caldecott, Tren de carga (Freight Train) y School Bus. Vive con su esposa, Ann Jonas, cerca del Río Hudson, en Nueva York. 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.

Its tone is very different than that of Bigmama’s. It is full of excitement, fear, and suspense- a roller coaster of emotions! I especially love the use of onomatopoeia to illustrate the train’s whistle and wheels hurdling down the tracks. As a teacher, this story is a great addition to any author study on Donald Crews. It also makes for the perfect mentor text when teaching young writers how to write small moment personal narrative stories. This book is perfect for children ages 5-8 and is sure to have them on the edge of their seats.

The train tracks ran right by Bigmama's house in Cottondale, and the children were warned to stay off the tracks. So seven children decide to take the shortcut home, even though that means walking along the train tracks when they've been told to always take the road. They look, they listen, and the coast seems clear. Just when there's no turning back, the train appears.

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

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!
