We're Going on a Bear Hunt (Board Book)

We’re going on a bear hunt! Through the long wavy grass, the thick oozy mud and the swirling, whirling snowstorm! But will we find a bear today? Now in a sturdy board book edition, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt won the Smarties Book Prize and was highly commended for the Kate Greenaway Medal. With atmospheric rhymes to repeat out loud and a huge surprise at the end, this lyrical favourite from former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen deserves to be a part of every childhood.

    This has got to be one of my family favourite books where every body joins in making the sounds of various obstacles and sometimes we don’t even get to the end because we’re all laughing. I would recommend this book for young children.
