Product Information

Have you ever gone on a bear hunt? Come along on this one with a brave young family -- four children (including the baby) and their father. They're not scared. With them you will cross a field of tall, wavy grass ("Swishy swashy!"), wade through a deep, cold river ("Splash splosh!"), struggle through swampy mud ("Squelch squerch!"), find your way through a big, dark forest ("Stumble trip!"), fight through a whirling snowstorm ("Hoooo woooo!"), and enter a narrow, gloomy cave. WHAT'S THAT? You'll soon learn just what to do to escape from a big, furry bear!

With tremendous pace, humor, and verve, Michael Rosen has retold a favorite tractional story. The pictures by Helen Oxenbury, one of the most widely loved contemporary artists, are full of masterly characterizations, delightful comedy, and high drama, set in lovely sweeping landscapes. This is a book not to be missed, one to be chanted aloud and acted out, to be enjoyed over and over again. It is a picture book on the grand scale.

      My son is 21 months and we've been reading this book for 4 months now. He loves to act out the various parts of the book and pretend that he's being chased by a bear. It's great fun for both of us!

        Comments about We're Going on a Bear Hunt:

        I wasn't sure if my son would enjoy this book but, based on all of the great reviews I purchased it. After reading the book for several days, it won its place in my son's pile of favorites books. With over 100 books to choose from, my son always selects this book as one of his 5 or 6 books for me to read before bed. The chant is catchy and the book has a nice rhythm to it.
