A little boy and his mother walk through town. He looks at everything, taking his time. His mother wants him to hurry. He asks to wait. They reach the train but see something they both want to stop and look at.
I love the push and pull of this narrative. While there aren't many words on the page, this story packs a punch. I love the idea of slowing down and taking in your surroundings. It's great to have that reminder. That's why the pictures are crucial to the story, they make the story pop.
I would love to use this story in story time.
