We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen
This is such an enjoyable story full of alliteration, onomatopoeia, adventure and the perfect amount of peril. It’s a simple story of a family walk but the way in which Michael Rosen brings the story to life is captivating.
The images are drawn by Helen Oxenbury and capture the moods of the story beautifully.
Here is a video of Michael Rosen performing the story. It’s great because you can see exactly what he has in mind for each scene.
