We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is a classic book about an intrepid family who, probably without thinking it through, decide to go on a bear hunt. The book is written such that it sounds fantastic when you read it out loud — perfect for story-time.
(Note: Some editions are not coloured.)
My son loved the sound effects and would always answer “No!” when I add “Are you scared?” after the “We’re not scared” line, heheh. The illustrations are also wonderful, perfectly depicting the wide open spaces infused with the spirit of adventure.
