Product Description

From Amazon

"We're going on a bear hunt. / We're going to catch a big one. / What a beautiful day! / We're not scared." So begins Michael Rosen's award-winning read-aloud romp We're Going on a Bear Hunt. In this lovely boxed gift edition illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, a small paperback version of the book is packaged with the softest, most fabulous little brown bear we've ever seen. Reenacting "Splash splosh! Splash splosh! Splash splosh!" across the river is much more fun with an actual bear on hand. (Ages 4 and older) --This text refers to the Board book edition.

From Publishers Weekly

A father and his four children--a toddler, a preschool boy and two older girls--go on the traditional bear hunt based on the old camp chant: "We're going to catch a big one. / What a beautiful day! / We're not scared. / Oh-oh! Grass! / Long, wavy grass. / We can't go over it. / We can't go under it. / Oh, no! / We've got to go through it!" The family skids down a grassy slope, swishes across a river, sludges through mud and, of course, finally sees the bear, who chases them all back to their home. It's a fantastic journey--was it real or imagined?--with the family's actions (and interaction) adding to the trip a goodnatured, jolly mood. The design of the oversized volume alternates black-and-white drawings with gorgeous full-color watercolor paintings, which Oxenbury uses to wonderful effect. Readers accustomed to her board books will find a different style here, of puddled colors and sweeps of light and shadow. The scale of the pictures and the ease with which the text can be shouted aloud make this ideal for families or groups to share. Ages 4-9.

5.0 out of 5 stars 18 month's favorite book Aug. 6 2006
By Peter
Format:Board book
This book has several pages of adventure (going through mud, snow, etc.) and into a bear's den. Then they find the bear and panic. They run home compressing all what they been through while being chased by the bear. The story ends with the adventurers in bed under the covers and the bear walking home. With decent narration, this makes an exciting story. My little boy continues to love this story since he was 6 months old, and keeps returning to it as he slowly understands more and more of it. He would push aside his other favorite books (Goodnight Gorilla, Tumble Bumble, Very Hungry Caterpillar and similar) to find this book and bring it to me. Nothing quiets him down for readings as fast as this book.
Very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars We're going on a bear hunt again and again! March 23 2001
Format:Board book
We enjoy going along the adventure with the family in the book and shouting phrases like, " We can't go over it. We can't go under it. Oh,no! We've got to go through it!" There are fantastic sounds along the journey like "Hoo Woo" in the snowstorm. The ending is best read really fast, which is at times challenging for the parent and fun for all. We love this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars great version of old camp story May 13 2011
By Barb
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just got this book for my grandchildren and was very pleased with it. It is a great version of the old camp story that we often tell. The illustrations are wonderful and as I have the four grandchildren (two boys and two girls) they enjoy pointing themselves out in the pictures in the book. Best read by someone who can do good sound effects!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great rhythm ! March 29 2002
By A Customer
Format:Board book
There aren't very many words in this book, but it is a GREAT story. I bought it for my husband who is a professional storyteller. He plans to use the story when 'telling' to young children.
Very imaginative and colorful story! I highly recommend it for infants and young toddlers.
