This book is hilarious. By far my favorite childrens book. The only down side is that this is not a good bedtime book. My 3 year old loves this book, it leaves him cracking up laughing every time!! Unfortunately he gets too excited then it is hard for me to calm him back down to get in sleep mode. But just for reading during the day.....AWESOME!!! As a parent you have to have a sense of humor and be very animated while reading this book. AWESOME BOOK ... MY FAVORITE!!!!
AS bedtime approaches my five year old pulls his batman cape out of the closet, hangs it over his shoulders, sifts through his books until he reaches the end and finds "BIG PLANS". He places the book on my lap, insisting this is our first book for the night.
AS I read thru the pages, Sam gets excited anticipating his role. I turn the page. Sam jumps off onto his feet yelling "I HAVE BIG PLANS".
Talk about a book I can get my son involved with. My 5 year loves when we read "Big Plans". Even after booktime, and I leave him to fall to sleep, my son is yelling down the hall to me "I HAVE BIG PLANS".
As an adult I could not help but to chuckle as I read "Big Plans" the first few times. How many adults do we know who run around acting like the little boy in this book?
Great book- engaging, entertaining for adults and children, awesome illustrations. A must have for any boy or girl at bedtime or even when you want a book to get them out of a "funk". "Big Plans" is the perfect recipe for fun, laughter and smiles. Bonus adventure- try reading this with three 5 year olds wearing super hero capes.
We can't wait for our other books by Bob Shea to arrive.
