We are going on a Bear Hunt

I love this book it is so magical so many can be bought to life with this book it is unbelievable. I use this with with  autistic , SEN sessions and it is brilliant.

The family  are going on a Bear Hunt full of bravado and over flowing with confidence!

"We are going on a Bear Hunt,
We're going to Catch a big one
What a Beautiful day !
We're not scared !"

 The repartition is wonderful repetition of the "We can't go over it. / We can't go under it. / Oh no! / We've got to go through it" kind, and frequent onomatopoeia ("Swishy Swashy … Splash Splosh … Hoooo Woooo") will maintain interest for even the youngest of listeners. And the poetic language en thralls even the youngest of readers its pure delight.

and also how it encourages the preposition of language ie "We can't go under it"

 The ability to be able adapt your surroundings this to this book are  only limited by your imaginations from having a bear cave play corner to going throw  some " Swish Swashy ' long grass.

To going outside when its wet and going through the mud " Suelch Squerch"

To even making  a Bear with two "googly eyes" and a "Wet shiny nose "

Your only limit is your imagination or your childs with is unlimited of course !
