Happy 25th Birthday, We're Going on a Bear Hunt!
This year it is twenty five years since the publication of the now classic We're Going on a Bear Hunt, by Michael Rosen, with illustrations by Helen Oxenbury.
It hardly comes as a surprise to me that it is precisely the review of this must-have picture book that receives, by far, the most visits of all the reviews on this site. Both in the original English, and in the wonderful Spanish translation, this is a story to share, to recite, to move about to, to act out and to chant. It's lots and lots of fun. Happy Birthday! And many many happy returns to the bookshelves.
