In the book, four friends see a bird they want to catch. As they creep around to catch it, they continually cannot catch it. One of the friends constantly calls out to the bird, while three others tell him "Shh...We have a plan!" Finally, the littlest friend comes up with a plan of his own and follows through with it. The other friends are amazed at how he gets the bird to come to him.
The simple pictures tell the story for the reader, who can see the ways the friends are trying to solve a problem. Children will enjoy reading the simple book and have a simple understanding of the story.
In the end, the friends see a squirrel. This will be perfect for students to come up with different solutions for catching the squirrel. I would love to see some of the ideas students could come up with! I plan to use this with my students as we work on problem and solution!
