I saw an Ant on the Railroad Track

One of our favorite train books is I saw an Ant on the Railroad Track by Joshua Prince and illustrated by Macky Pamintuan. The brilliant colors bring to life the story of a hungry ant that goes out for a walk on an empty  railroad track.

The story is told by Jack, the switchman, in brilliantly rhyming verse. One of our favorite lines is "sure as shellac" as Jack describes the sight of a train heading toward the ant.

 Discover what happens to the ant, Jack, and the train!
