Book Review - Shh! We Have a Plan
About the Book
From the creator of Little Owl Lost and Oh No, George! comes a funny, strikingly illustrated story of best-laid plans — and the secret to attracting the birdie.
Four friends creep through the woods, and what do they spot? An exquisite bird high in a tree! "Hello birdie," waves one. "Shh! We have a plan," hush the others. They stealthily make their advance, nets in the air. Ready one, ready two, ready three, and go! But as one comically foiled plan follows another, it soon becomes clear that their quiet, observant companion, hand outstretched, has a far better idea. Award-winning author-illustrator Chris Haughton is back with another simple, satisfying story whose visual humor plays out in boldly graphic, vibrantly colorful illustrations.
My Take on the Book
Chris Haughton has written a humorous story to share with your child. There are four friends and one is a tiny friend. They are seeking to capture a bird and run into all kinds of challenges that will bring a smile to your face. You will see who is smarter in the story pretty quickly. Although the story is written simply and the illustrations are not very detailed, the story is there and so much fun to read. There is a surprise as the bird is finally brought closer to being captured. Enjoy this story together.
