The Lovereading4Kids comment

The little shrew has a very big message but a very small voice. He wants to make a plea for peace but he just cannot get his voice heard above all the other noises in the world. Luckily, he never gives up and little by little he begins to make some headway. A warm story with a wise and important point to make.

Synopsis

SHHH! by Jeanne Willis

A little shrew had wonderful news! He wanted to tell the whole world, but it was too noisy. 'I know the secret of Peace on Earth!' he said. Nobody heard him. Everyone was much too busy doing their own thing. He wanted to say that if everyone in the whole world just sat still for a moment and listened, there would be Peace on Earth.

Booktrusted News Cleverly manoeuvred and worth a look. Nursery World This is a book that can be enjoyed over and over again. 5to7 Educator I wish there were more books like this Books for Keeps
