Product Description

Beloved for more than 30 years, this award-winning classic from Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury celebrates the joys of an afternoon outdoors with family.

We’re going on a bear hunt. We’re going to catch a big one.

Will you come too? Join a father and his four young children as they cross a field of tall, wavy grass, wade through a deep, cold river, struggle through swampy mud, find their way through a big, dark forest, fight through a whirling snowstorm, and enter finally enter a narrow, gloomy cave. What will they find there? You’ll have to read on to find out!

For more than thirty years readers have been swishy swashing and splash sploshing through this award-winning favorite. Now fans of this timeless story from Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury can celebrate and share with this oversized lap board book edition that has an updated, colorized cover.

My son could listen to this story all day. "We''re Going on a Bear Hunt" does just that, takes the reader on an adventure they''ll never forget. Children love the obstacles the characters run into on their way to finding a bear. Each page has beautifully illustrated pictures with breezy colors. It''s good for young children who are learning to talk, as well as, those who are learning to read. The story uses repetitive language which is wonderful for young readers and children who are building their vocabulary. We like to do the actions with the characters as they go through the wilderness and bring the adventure to life. A side note, my son likes to watch the animated version on our kindle through Amazon Free Time.

Word of warning-this is not the same as the original pop-up celebratory version. I bought this to replace a well loved older version we had. It’s my 3 year old’s favorite book, but many of the moving parts are glitchy and/or ripped from older siblings. I wanted her to have the full experience. I was disappointed when I received this one and saw a toned down basic version of the original. Though it’s cute, you will be disappointed if you have seen the first pop up publication. Ours has very detailed, layered, full page pop ups, with each pop up having multiple separate moving parts on every page. The snowstorm has plastic overlays that move independently of each other, making the scene have a snow globe effect. The page that details the families trek back through all the obstacles while fleeing the bear has individual moving parts on each frame in the original, while this new one has none. Just a few of the differences. I’ve found what appears to be the original version on Barnes & Nobles for close to the same price, if you are also looking for the top notch version. Hopeful it is in fact the correct one.

Update 4/8/20: I submitted this return item on 3/30/20. I scheduled for UPS to pick up from my home, says it was scheduled to be picked up on the next business day. I have contacted UPS 3x now and they say they have not received any information from this Amazon seller. Tried calling Amazon and they have no one answering phones.

Very disappointed to receive this book with several missing pages! My son enjoys this book at school, and I thought it would be a nice surprise for him while he’s home during our statewide COVID-19 lockdown. We sat down to read the book and were so bummed when the story ended abruptly due to missing pages. I’m not going to even try to reorder this book, will be looking to purchase others to keep us occupied.

I didn’t realize the hardcover was a pop up “snow globe edition. I would have preferred a simple book. I absolutely love this book, and have owned it before. My kids tore up our paper edition through use, so I repurchased the hardcover thinking it would be sturdier. It is a pop up, and it’s beautiful, but I’m just worried it will be fragile. I’m keeping it but I’d have preferred a sturdy copy to a pretty copy.

For those that said that the story is boring...we do a lot of hand motions to make it fun and they LOVE it. We clap to the beat. We stomp through the “mud” and we pretend to splash our feet through “the river”. We fall down through “the forest” and we always end the book by covering our heads with a blanket like we are hiding from a bear.

The storyline of “hunting a bear” doesn’t bother me. It’s a story about a family going for a walk while pretending to hunt for (look for) a bear, not expecting to find one. They’re not trying to literally hunt down a bear. When they do accidentally find a bear the family in the story run back through the terrain they’ve just come through. For my kids, that means we get to stomp, fall over, splash, etc all over again, but quickly the second time through as the family in the story runs home. All 4 of my kids have loved it from about age 2 on up. It’s a fun story if you use your imagination and make it fun.

Sturdy book and actually good size— good quality overall. My toddler and I love reading this book. We get animated while reading it. Good book to learn some of the prepositions for the kids like over , under, through. The story consist of a family going through obstacles and saying that they cant go over it, they cant go under, we have to go through it — just like life we have to go through some obstacles and we just have to go through it. I am not fond of chasing the bear part but it could be use figuratively and at the end of the day, you use parental guidance.

This is such a fun book. I bought it after my kids attended a Zumba class and acted it out along to music. That same day, I came home to see another friend posting about it. I took that as a sign, and I am glad I did because it has become a favorite in my house.

My 6-year-old can read it on her own, but I will sometimes sit with her and my 4-year old, and we will take turns saying parts of it since it is so easy to memorize. Sometimes they will act it out as well.

There is also a cartoon on Amazon Prime that brings the illustrations and story to "life", so I recommend checking that out.

More recently, I gave a copy as a gift with a small teddy bear, and it was well received.

You really can''t go wrong with this one.

As far as I can tell, the poor bear did not do anything to justify being hounded. This so-called family should start to respect the personal rights of bears. You know, GDPR and all that. How would they feel if a family of bears went and followed them home and started running through rivers and grass and such. Disgraceful really. But you know, these people have probably never had a decent bowl of porridge in their lives.

My 2.5 year old daughter absolutely loves this book and she reads it several times a day. When she started reading this book she didn’t say much but now she has started copying the sounds ‘swishy swishy’ ‘tiptoe tiptoe’ etc. We’ve got lots of nursery rhyme and first word sounds books but none are as popular as this one and it isn’t because she’s seen it on tv or YouTube. The book is so well used, many of the pages are torn (they are quite big pages for little hands to turn) but I’d much prefer that than an unread book!

We''re Going on a Bear Hunt is a delightful tale of an adventure-seeking family. On their way to catch the bear they find a number of obstacles (long wavy grass, squelchy mud, dark forest, swirling snow storm and dark gloomy cave) and they can’t “Go over It, Can’t go under it, Oh NO! they got to go through it“. Finally, the family reached to the cave where they find the bear, they got scared and ran back home, which wasn’t even easy as they had to face all those obstacles again. The book can also be sung like a song and children just love it as well. Watch Michael Rosen performing "We are going on a bear hunt" on YouTube!

I’m a reception class teacher and this is one of my favourite children’s books to read to my class. The illustrations are beautiful, the text is simply written and perfect to sing along to. The repetitive language is appealing for small children and the noisy words to describe the family’s movement through the different settings are easy for children to remember. It’s one of those classic books that every child should read, enjoy and role play. Perfect for classrooms, bedtime stories and sharing with a little one.
