Joyful and colourful reimagining of the American folk song, We're Going on a Bear Hunt.

Three children are off on an Easter egg hunt! But first, they've got to get through the flapping hens, hungry bunnies and hopping frogs. And then . . . what a surprise to find TEN big eggs in the garden! And now it's time for the Easter parade!

This Easter-themed story has zingy neon ink on the cover and throughout, and is filled with cute characters and fun surprises. Repeated phrases and sound words make this an interactive picture book, great for sharing with the whole family.

This is the perfect gift for fans of the classic song We're Going on a Bear Hunt, made famous by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury.  Every Nosy Crow paperback picture book comes with a free "Stories Aloud" audio recording. Just scan the QR code and listen along!



This book was certain to be added to my growing collection as soon as I read the title - I absolute love a classic that's been adapted! Anyone within listening distance won't be able to stop themselves from joining in with the familiar song: 'We're going on an egg hunt. We're going to find a big one. What a beautiful day! Spring is in the air!'

In We're Going on an Egg Hunt, we join three children who embark on a rather adventurous egg hunt! They have multiple obstacles to overcome, including: 'flapping, pecking hens', 'fluffy, hungry bunnies' and 'happy, hopping frogs', until they finally come to a garden to find ten Easter eggs.

This book lends itself perfectly to engaging Year 2 children who are learning about expanded noun phrases. There is a lot of fun to be had by innovating this story to include different adjectives for each noun. This book is also PERFECT for teaching Year 3 children about onomatopoeia, with the 'munch-crunch' of the bunnies eating carrots and the 'rustle-swish' of the grass. It is of course highly valuable for the littlest of children too. The repetitive language and the rhyme and rhythm lends itself to children joining in with either the words or by tapping to the beat of the chorus.  

When searching for a calmer story time that really activates the senses and gets the imagination flowing, the free audio book can be enjoyed. This is my favourite audio book so far from Nosy Crow. The sound effects are excellent! So, if you're looking for a book for a range of ages, or looking for a Spring book to enhance your reading area, We're Going on an Egg Hunt will fit that role perfectly!
