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,

Ant went on his way.
