LoveReading View on We're Going on a Bear Hunt

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.  ~ Julia Eccleshare

We're Going on a Bear Hunt Synopsis
