Shh! We Have a Plan

(1 customer review)
Chris Haughton (2014), Walker Books Ltd

Amidst a forest of blue, a bright red bird is spotted in the distance. Four characters are marching into the woods with a plan. Shh! the taller three figures say to the smallest one when he dares to speak outload: “hello, birdie.” “Shh! We have a plan,” they say. The four continue to tiptoe slowly toward the bird, nets in hand ready to capture their prey. After several fumbled attempts and more “shh-ing” to the little one who keeps trying to make friends with the bird, the group is suddenly surrounded by a flock of brightly colored birds, all thanks to the kindness shown by the little one.

What happened toward the end of this book?

After all the planning and tip-toeing around, why do you think the birds suddenly flocked around the group? Was it because of the plan? Why or why not?

I love the way the little one feels free to be who they are and approach the bird with kindness despite the pressure from the bigger ones to act in a different way, a mean way; and that the kindness of the little one is rewarded in the end by attracting the flock of birds.
