We're Going on a Bear Hunt

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt follows the family on their adventure as they come up against a host of obstacles and battle through whirling snowstorms, thick oozing mud and dark forests on their ambitious quest. But when Rosie and Rufus become detached from the rest of the party it looks like bear-hunting might not be such fun after all…

"squelch, squerch", "swishy swashy", "hoo woo" 

We're Going on a Bear is a classic children's picture book and it has been brought to live with the DVD release, an animated special We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.

Produced by the makers of the hugely popular The Snowman and The Snowdog and featuring a stellar cast and beautiful animation, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt will enchant fans old and new.

The heart-warming special expands the world of the book and features the voices of Olivia Colman, Pam Ferris and Mark Williams as brand new characters Mum, Grandma and Dad. Author Michael Rosen also makes an appearance as the Bear. The film also features a brand new song entitles Me & You specially composed by British singer-songwriter George Ezra.

Summer was super excited when we received the DVD, it's her favourite book from school, and she recites many parts of the story. She couldn't wait to watch it on DVD and when she did, she fell in love with it - she's watched it many, many times since. It's a short 30-minute DVD, and is beautifully produced.

Available on DVD from Monday 6th February.

To celebrate the release of the lovely new DVD, we were sent a box of lovely goodies, for a Twitter party. We invited a few friends round and had 2-hours of Bear Hunt fun!

We played Pin the Tail on the bear.

We watched the DVD together, ate popcorn.

We made some 'beartastic' cookies.

We cut out and wore 'bear' ears.

We were supplied with lots of prizes, and the kids took home a lovely goody bag at the end.
