Do You Have a Plan?

July 7, 2016

Do you have a plan? I have one. I want to read this picture book.

Shhh

Shh! We Have A Plan is written and illustrated by Chris Haughton. It’s an award-winning book published in 2014 by Candlewick Press. It’s been on my list to read for quite some time. I now have it. I’ve read it. Might I say, WOW! Chris Haughton conceived an idea, and in 102 words he created an amazing picture book.

 

Four friends see a bird they want to catch. They make a plan, but the littlest friend isn’t quite on track with their idea. Shh! Don’t tell, but each time the friends try to catch the bird, they bungle it. They try again and again with no success. The littlest friend has a simple plan of his own that works. Birds galore appear. His friends are thrilled until a BIG bird comes along. They run. The end result is no bird – nothing – until a squirrel appears. Do the friends have another plan?

 

Shh, don’t tell anyone, but this review is longer than Chris Haughton’s entire story. The simplicity, subtle humor, and illustrations which are done in blues and bright colors make this book a winner. If you haven’t read it, make a plan to get it today!
