We’re Going on a Bear Hunt

We’re going on a bear hunt. We’re going to catch a big one. What a beautiful day! We’re not scared. 

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is a fun story that won’t take long to become one of your absolute favourite reads. The repetition of certain lines, the wonderful onomatopoeic descriptions of the hurdles the family overcome, and the beautiful illustrations combine to create a masterful tale. Your children will learn the story, and will soon join you in saying it aloud, even the little ones, and they will delight in listening to this book almost as much as you will delight in reading it to them.

A family sets out on a new adventure, a bear hunt! But it’s not an easy journey and they will have to swishy swashy through long wavy grass, splash splosh through a deep cold river and even more if they are to continue their journey to search for a bear. What surprise awaits them in the narrow gloomy cave? You will have to join the bear hunt and find out!

The book features stunning black and white illustrations that depict the adventure unfolding, while every page that shows the family going through the next challenge is shown in beautiful, bright watercolour-like illustrations.

This special hardback gift edition of this classic story features a lovely snow scene on the cover. You’ll be able to shake it up to see the family walking through the snowstorm, and trust me your kids will want to shake it!

It’s incredible to think that this classic book is over 25 years old, and even today my children are loving this tale. To add some extra fun to your reading time you can also show them the story as told by author Michael Rosen. But be warned they will be singing the tune for many a day after watching this fun video!

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt Snowglobe Gift Book is available from bookstores and online retailers for a recommended retail price of R339.

Thanks to Pan Macmillan for letting us join the bear hunt too!

      The snowglobe cover is really beautiful. Thanks, I love how they ‘read’ along with the story already, even my little one who is 22 months. Story time is taken very seriously 🙂
