We were originally recommended this book by the speech and language therapist when my daughter was 2 for the repetition and the scope to act out the book in places by making our own swishy swashy grass from ribbons and a cave from a blanket.  The story in this book is lovely and engaging and is one we continue to read regularly.

Such a brilliant story, amazing rhymes and such a adventurous story for children to read or be read to. Lily felt a little sad at the end when the bear left but overall she enjoyed it.

I read this book to my little one and I found he was very interacted in the book and read it for days on end before bed. What made the book enjoyable for him was he really like the pictures and colours used as well as the choice of words being appropriate to his age.

I've loved this book ever since I was little, and the main part (we can't go under it, we can't go over it, we'll have to go through it) has stuck with me for life. But now being able to pass it on to my cousins and they love it the way I do, it makes me proud. They get so involved in it, it's lovely. One of my all-time favourites.

Lovely book, with illustrations to capture their minds.  My twin three year olds love this book being read to them and as we've read it so many times they often recite parts of the book.  We often imagine ourselves on the hunt. It’s a fantastic journey, and a fabulous story.

This is a brilliant book that my daughter loves to act out. 
The family in the book go exploring and along the way they explore many different areas, all in search for a bear. The repetition of the same words used in the book makes it so appealing for little ones as they know what to expect. There are also some great examples of onomatopoeia in the book which make it such a fun read aloud book.
My daughter also loves the illustrations and enjoys that parts are black and white and others in colour.
This book is a great family friendly read.

A fantastic story about  a family who go out in search of a bear and the obstacles they encountered  during their journey .
The story is written in a repetitive pattern which encourage My children to join in and they love the rhymic and repetition sentences.
The same passage repeated throughout this story make it more enchanting to read.
"We can't go over it' " We can't go under it' " we got to go through it" 
The illustration is perfect with right size and colours. On the last page the bear looks upset and give the impression that he is not scary and all he wanted was friends to play with.
Perfect book with glimpse of suspense for early readers.

My daughter received this book a while ago and didn't like it at first. We got it back out and on reading again. She got very involved with the book shouting the chorus and waving her arms. Once she had seen the program on the tv she asked for the story every night for a week. She now recognises the characters and what comes next. The book is now a huge hit with our family I believe she was just a bit young when first tried.

I love reading this book with my 2 year old twins. They love making the noises and we usually read it in bed so we can hide under the covers at the end. Just like the family! I found the repetition of the main verse a bit much when the boys were younger as they lost interest so only did it once or twice throughout. Hoping to add it all back in soon though.

I  borrowed  this book  from our local library  and  my  eldest  picked it up quite  quickly  and  began  reading it.  Lots of repetition  in the story  gave her  good practise in reading the story. With  lots of words that could be easily blended and segmented  to describe them going through the water, grass,  mud etc.  This is a story which never grows old  for anyone reading or listening to it.  your imagination  goes into over drive  imaging  what the people in the story are doing and feeling.  Excellent

My son can now recite most of the words from this book it's so lovely to hear him

The nice thing about this is using the words from the book when we are in the countryside. My little boy got down in the long grass when we went for a walk and remembered the book and the long grass and started repeating the words so its great for their little imaginations
