Children’s Hour: Shh! We Have A Plan

Children’s Hour is the weekly feature where I look at picture books I have encountered during my work at nursery. My reviews contain children’s opinions which are usually from the children in toddler room (so they are all 2). Sometimes I also have books which my niece and nephew are enjoying too.

You can find links to past Children’s Hour posts here.

The image (if you were wondering) is taken from Shirley’s Hughes’ Alfie and Annie-Rose books which I loved as a child.

I bought Shh! We Have a Plan for my two year old nephew for Christmas. It’s a simple enough story. There are three people trying to catch a bird, but things keep going wrong. It’s quite funny when you add the pictures.

My nephew appreciates that he can shout “go!” every couple of pages, and he likes to spot the bird, and to see what has happened to the people chasing him. My niece (who is five) likes that she can read it herself, partly from actual reading, partly from remembering.

Personally I do prefer Oh no, George! which is by the same author, but they are both quite entertaining.

My niece has just told me that Shh! We Have a Plan is funny because they say Shh! and they try to catch the bird, then they fall out of the tree, then they fall in the water.
