A companion to Everything I Need to Know I Learned From a Little Golden Book, this wasn’t as enjoyable but I think that’s mostly due to sequels rarely being as good as their predecessors.
Beautiful illustrations are paired with short (or even shorter) poems each one focusing on a different type of bird. This is just another must-add title to the whole flock of great bird books that have come out this past year.
Chris Haughton seems to be an up and coming author/illustrator. His Little Owl Lost has been extremely popular as I’m sure this would be as well. Reading Shh! was like watching a classic cartoon- full of visual gags and humor both obvious and subtle.
What a great read aloud! I think this might win the Theodore Geisel award. I’ll definitely be recommending this to customers who love a fun story, taking something most of us are familiar with and twisting it into something new!
