The Lovereading4Kids comment

Fantastic, cumulative adventure as a family cheerfully sets out on a brave hunt to find the bear. It could be frightening but they’re not scared. They’re full of confidence in what they are doing. Caves, mud, rivers, forest … whatever obstacles the family encounters, they resolutely overcome them happily repeating the chorus:
“We can’t go over it”, “We can’t go under it”, “Oh no! We’ve got to go through it”.
But when they find the bear its’ a lot more scary than they had thought and they hurtle home repeating all the noises as they go.

Perfect for Reluctant Readers. To view other titles we think are suitable for reluctant readers please click here.

We're Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen

Follow the family's excitement as they wade through the grass, splash through the river and squelch through the mud in search of the bear. What a surprise awaits in the cave on the other side of the dark forest.
