We're going on a bear hunt! Through the long wavy grass, the thick oozy mud and the swirling, whirling snowstorm - will we find a bear today? Children will love joining in with the animated version of this adventurous tale from the acclaimed King Rollo Films - accompanied by specially composed music and narrated by Emilia Fox and Kevin Whatley - and following all the action in the classic picture book, which won the Smarties Book Prize and was Highly Commended for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

This is one of my favourite books to read to my children. I still read it to both my girls who are 2 & 9. It’s now become a tradition. Both girls along with myself really enjoy this book. Never gets old or boring

A book that has been loved by both adults and children for many years. Children love the alliteration and actions. The anticipation of going on the hunt is always fun...even when you know the result. The illustrations are wonderful. A real little adventure book.

An absolute favourite for my daughter! Usually read at bed time so she can pull the covers over her head at the end and pretend she is in the book. Actions can be incorporated throughout the book when reading it. A nice length of story to keep children engaged. The repetition is great for children to join in with the story. Highly recommended for children especially age group 3-5 years, enjoyed by adults too!

A classic from my childhood, still think it’s just as brilliant today. Lots of repetition which is good for increasing children’s vocabulary and confidence. A book to be read time and time again.

A classic story that most children know. We love reading this book together and making the story exciting. We have read this story so many times we know it by heart and often go on our own bear hunts ! Beautiful illustrated and timeless

We're Going On a Bear Hunt was one of my favourite books as a child and so I love reading it to the pre school children whenever I can. The children really enjoy listening to the story as it's easy for them to join in and has great illustrations. The children will often join in with the actions of the book and can finish off sentences as they've read it so often. I like the last page as it gives us the chance to talk about how we think the bear is feeling and that sometimes everything is not always as it seems. It is a fantastic  book that all children should enjoy.

I have been reading this book to my little ones since they were tiny and they still don't tire of it. I used to love doing all the hand actions to go with this story.  The descriptive words used in this book are wonderful and I love how the story flows. We still sing it sometimes when we go on walks. This book is excellent and a must on any child's book shelf.

This book is amazing as it not just a story book. You can make it into so much more. We loves playing bear hunt and pretending we are doing the story in the book. It is fantastic for all ages. The pictures are amazing and it very much like you are singing the words in book not reading a story.

I don't think there is a single Early Years teacher out there who doesn't know this book by heart... This Michael Rosen picture book is an absolute classic, filled with fantastic verbs, repeated verses and a great rhythm! (Check out Rosen's reading performance of the story on YouTube if you haven't heard the beat before). Children pick up the words to this story so quickly, and from an experience perspective, is a lovely tale to act-out outside if you have the space to do it... and the swishy, swashy grass. I highly recommend this book!

My little boy likes the pictures but it was a bit to early for him. We just do the noises.

I have read this book so many times and am not bored of it. I read it to my son when he was younger (now 14) and now I read it to my daughter (4) both were and are huge fan of the book. I don't know anyone who has read the book that hasn't been disappointed with it. It's fantastic and really keeps the kids entertained and smiling throughout.
A great buy

This is a lovely book that I have read many times. The rhythm and flow of the text is fantastic. I love using hand actions as the children go through different places on their walk. When my children were little they used to love being able to predict where the book was going to next. A must on any ones book shelf.
