We're Going on a Bear Hunt

A total classic. Can you rhyme it as loud as we can? It’s splashy, it’s muddy and it’s loads of fun. Don’t delay: pull on your wellies! Hurray: we’re going on a bear hunt! Through the long wavy grass, thick oozy mud and a swirling snowstorm. But will we find a BEAR today? Get ready to run away! We always love Michael Rosen, but never more than when we’re reading this noisy, joyful delight.

  • A classic delight by the best-loved Michael Rosen
