'We're going on a bear hunt. We're going to catch a big one. What a beautiful day! We're not scared.'
But it's never that easy going on a bear hunt, as these prospective hunters soon find out. Join a family of brave explorers as they tramp across a field of swishy swashy grass, splash splosh through a deep cold river and squelch squerch through thick oozy mud. But they'll never find a real bear…will they?
Michael Rosen's reworking of this traditional camp song is a triumph. A rambunctious romp that begs to be chanted aloud and acted out, this modern classic will soon have children plodding through snowstorms and traipsing through forests. Rosen's narrative is just delightfully scary enough for young reader and will have little ones gripped from start to finish. Full of rhyming and repetition, 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' is perfect circle time fare. With text in dual language new arrivals can enjoy the story as much as the rest ofthe class.
