We're going on a bear hunt.
We’re going to catch a big one.
What a beautiful day!
We’re not scared.

Why go on a walk, when you can go on a bear hunt?

For brave hunters and bear-lovers, this is a dramatic version of a favourite picture book in which children join in taking different parts of the reading.

Offering a very different storytelling experience, this Walker All Join In Story Play is a dramatic version of a favourite picture book written for four voices. Each part is clearly marked by different colour bands so children can join in.

Perfect for reading aloud, this innovative and beautifully designed book offers a simple, clever and utterly enjoyable way of sharing stories and learning to read. The Walker All Join In Story Plays are written in strongly patterned language by Vivian French to cater for readers with different levels of experience. There are brief teaching notes at the back which give parents and teachers helpful advice on sharing the books with children.

We're going on a bear hunt. We're going to catch a big one. Will you come too?

For a quarter of a century, readers have been swishy-swashying and splash-sploshing through this award-winning favourite. Michael Rosen’s timeless classic, lovingly illustrated by Helen Oxenbury is, in fact, nearing its thirtieth anniversary having first appeared in print in 1989 since when it has become an essential feature on any child’s first bookcase.

Shhhhh…. Don’t wake the bear!

Winner of the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize

He’s also a familiar figure in broadcasting, regularly presenting R4 programmes including Word of Mouth and a passionate advocate of reading in schools.

This is a fantastic book because i find it encourages speech in pre-school children due to the repetitive theme. The children wait in anticipation & then join in with the famous "we're going on a bear... More
