The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is an exhilarating story about friends helping each other realise their dreams and, having great fun doing it. When bear wants to fly he’s helped by four little children to realise his dream. What fun they have. In addition, it comes complete with an audio CD that is read by the author. It’s a perfect book for reading aloud and for listening to on a journey. A joyful follow up to The Bear in the Cave and We’re going on a Bear Hunt.

Synopsis

Bear Flies High (Hardback and Audio CD) by Michael Rosen

Bear is playing on the beach and, seeing the seagulls wheeling above him, decides that he would love to learn how to fly. And there are four children with him who know exactly how to make that happen. An exhilarating story about friends helping each other to realise their dreams - and have great fun doing it!

Reviews

Praise for The Bear in the Cave: The Bear in the Cave feels more like jazz than prose

'A long-awaited near-sequel to the bestselling, much-chanted We're Going on a Bear Hunt'

'Bear Flies High' 'A jolly book of wish fulfilment ... [it] is quite literally poetry in motion'

'Every bit as sing-songy as We're Going on a Bear Hunt, and backed by warm and vibrant illustrations'
