Fun and spooky reimagining of the American folk song, We're Going on a Bear Hunt.
Three children are hunting for the perfect pumpkin to take trick or treating. But first, they've got to get through the sticky spiders' webs, the flapping bats, and then - worst of all - enter a spooky HAUNTED HOUSE! Will they find a great big pumpkin there . . . or the biggest surprise of the night?
This Halloween-themed story has zingy neon ink on the cover and throughout, and is filled with cute characters and spooky surprises! Repeated phrases and sound words make this an interactive picture book, great for sharing with the whole family.
This is a perfect gift for fans of the classic song We're Going on a Bear Hunt, made famous by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury.
An interesting twist on the traditional favourite 'We're going on a Bear Hunt'.
We're Going on a Pumpkin Hunt follows the same story line but all of the obstacles are halloween-themed. They come across cats, cobwebs, bats, a haunted house and a ghost! The characters can't go over, under or around them so they have to go through them. When they find the ghost, they go back through the obstacles to find safety at home but when they get there, there's a pumpkin!
This is a nice book which even very young children will be able to enjoy. The traditional story with repetitive language provides a great opportunity to develop children's memories by learning the story with actions to go along with it. This would be another great story to do that with; children could learn the book to develop those skills with an exciting twist on the traditional tale, based around an event that excites many of them!
