We're Going on a Bear Hunt


This worthy winner of the 1989 Nestle Smarties Book Prize and 2011 Mumsnet Best Award is a timeless classic that is enjoyed by children of all ages, as well as by the adults who are continually asked to read it again and again! It follows a family’s excitement as they swish and swash through the grass, splash and splosh through the river and squelch and squerch through the mud in search of the bear. Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury’s family favourite celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and what better way to join the bear hunt than with a BookBench.
