We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen
Published by Walker Books Australia
This picture book is undoubtedly a classic. Well-known to all those who grew up in the 1990s, it’s fun for all the family. Bear Hunt, unsurprisingly, chronicles the adventures of a family who go on a bear hunt. Mum, Dad, two younger children, a baby and the family dog go bear hunting and are shocked by what they find.
Perfect for younger children, the fun sounds the family makes (‘Splash, splosh! Swishy, swashy!), create an interactive reading time to keep children engaged and make books exciting. The repetition, large font and suspense are perfect for younger readers and Oxenbury’s watercolours are vivid.
If your children liked The Hungry, Hungry Caterpillar, they will thoroughly enjoy Bear Hunt.
