The legendary We’re Going On A Bear Hunt celebrates its 25th year

July 21, 2014

The story of We’re Going On A Bear Hunt was told animatedly each year I went to camp, and it was a hit. I never read the book then, but I knew the story well, and it’s something I’ve started reading my son.


Written by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, We’re Going On A Bear Hunt is an award-winner, now in its 25th year of publication. Have a look for it shelves or online (it’s published by Pan Macmillian), or if you’re curious or nostalgic, watch Michael Rosen read the story below.
