We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury

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 โ€” perfect for story-time.

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.

Check out the video below of the author’s adorably evocative rendition:
