This week for our children’s book of the week, we have We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury. This is a wonderful tale of adventure as a family bravely venture out to find a bear. We’re not scared, are you?
Watch Michael Rosen tell the story
The glorious Michael Rosen performs his story – or is it a poem? This tale of resilience and courage is more relevant then ever. Michael Rosen is very funny and lots of children will know him from his hilarious ‘Chocolate Cake’ video. Check him out here?
