Shh! We Have A Plan by Chris Haughton
The latest offering from Chris Haughton is another delightful
book in which the pictures tell the story.
They tip-toe, tip-toe very slowly, nets poised - "Ready one ... ready two ... ready three ... GO!" There’s huge suspense for little listeners.
At the end of the book, we find an empty net and a blissfully oblivious bird, flying away. One hilarious plan after another is foiled. The only member of the group who comes close is the littlest of the group, a quiet spectator who instinctively knows that a bit of kindness is more important than the most detailed plans.
Haughton’s latest picture book has proven a much loved favourite among children aged 2 to 3. Just as well it only contains approximately a hundred words because they will want to hear it over and over again.
Check out Chris Haughton’s other award-winning books for very young children, A Bit Lost and Oh No George!
Shh! We Have A Plan is the winner of the 2014
Irish Book Awards, Specsavers Children’s Junior Book of the Year.
