The Ant and the Inchworm

In honor of Theodore Geisel’s birthday March 2nd–known to most of us as the amazing Dr. Seuss, I have entered Vivian Kirkfield’s #50PreciousWords kidlit writing challenge.

Story must be 50 words or less for kids 12 and under and have a tiny arc structure.  

The Ant and the Inchworm – 49 words
______________________________________________________________

Ant went for a walk.
He met Inchworm.

“Pardon me,” Ant said,
“I need to get by.”
“Me, too,” replied Inchworm.

They stood and stared.

Finally, Ant said,
“If you will move an inch to the right,
I will move too.”

Inchworm moved right.
Ant went on his way.

    1. Yes, Brenda, Ant is quite the little persuader. I would love to see this illustrated. The artists today are fantastic! both with the actual pictures and capturing the essence of the characters. I’m in awe.
      Good luck in the contest! and thanks for reading and commenting. 🙂
