I’ve heard so many good things about this book, therefore I had to pick it up when I saw it in the bookshop.
A brilliant book for very young readers who love repetition.
We can’t go over it. / We can’t go under it. / Oh no! / We’ve got to go through it.
This beautifully illustrated family of four encounters caves, mud, forests and rivers while on their journey to hunt a bear. Each time they encounter an obstacle, they overcome it with great enthusiasm and confidence. I imagine that it is a great book for storytime as there’s frequent usage of onomatopoeia which can be exaggerated if you get kids to carry out the actions too. Don’t children just love to participate at storytime too?
I particularly liked the part when they finally found the bear and had to go through all the obstacles again to get home. It felt pretty thrilling! It’s definitely an interactive book which will capture the minds of little ones.
