#Review: We're Going On A Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen/ Illustrator Helen Oxenbury #Kidsbooks, #atozchallenge,

We’re going on a bear hunt. We’re going to catch a big one.

Will you come too? 

My review:
This has to be one of my favorite all time books for children. In my years as a preschool teacher, Mom, and now, Grandma, I have read this book many times and yet, never reviewed it.

I absolutely love the repetitive nature of this book. In two sittings of reading this book on the same day, my granddaughter has already memorized some of the repetitious lines. 

I read this book with actions for each item the family comes to. It is enjoyable to see children do those same actions as the book is read. We even go on our own "bear hunt!" I love, love LOVE it! 

The illustrations are fun and colorful and children can easily see what the family is coming up on next. The twist at the end of course is priceless.

The copy I have now is the 25th anniversary edition which includes a soft not-so-large bear with it. Fun! This is a must have book for any household or school to have.

Disclosure: I purchased this book for my own collections. The views expressed here are 100% my own and may differ from yours. ~Naila Moon
