Synopsis

The Storytime: The Snake Who Says Shhh... by Jodie Parachini

A sweet story about being heard that's sure to become a bedtime favourite. Seth slithers out of his hole and tries to say his first word, but all that comes out is 'Shhh'. His mother encourages Seth to try again, but no luck. All he can say is 'Shhh'! The jungle animals who have gathered to hear Seth's first word erupt into giggles and fits of laughter. Whoever heard of a snake that said shhh? The grumpy leopard then tells the other animals that they need to decide on a present to give Seth. The animals shout out suggestions from a toothbrush to leaves. But none of them can agree. Their shouting escalates until Seth cannot take any more. He loudly says 'SHHHHH!' The jungle animals then realize that the best gift for Seth would be some peace and quiet. QED's Storytime series is going from strength to strength and has recently had several titles read on CBeebies Bedtime Stories. These charming books combine colourful illustrations with heartwarming narrative, each with its own unique message for young children.
