This book is a great interactive story that will help students with getting out energy. This story also helps students with their repetition of stories. ( )

This book is a fun family or classroom story to read along with children. It's great for shared reading or used in any other way. It teaches creativity and how to make a situation fun for everyone. The story is great for shared reading as it is repetitive but also tells a story about a family getting outside and creating fun together. I love this book as it can be a great story to tell and allow the kids to get up and move around while reading it. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0689853491, Paperback)

"We're going on a bear hunt. / We're going to catch a big one. / What a beautiful day! / We're not scared." So begins Michael Rosen's award-winning read-aloud romp We're Going on a Bear Hunt. In this lovely boxed gift edition illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, a small paperback version of the book is packaged with the softest, most fabulous little brown bear we've ever seen. Reenacting "Splash splosh! Splash splosh! Splash splosh!" across the river is much more fun with an actual bear on hand. (Ages 4 and older)

A typically wonderful Oxenbury family sets out with gusto on a bear hunt, and the old story comes to life. Paintings are simply marvelous ... Rosen's retelling is spare, with a driving rhythm, and some new sounds add sparkle to the traditional tale. A predictable story in which brave bear hunters go through grass, a river, mud, and other obstacles before the inevitable encounter with the bear forces a headlong retreat.… (more)
