[ Pdf We're Going on a Bear Hunt Ñ m-m-contemporary PDF ] by Michael Rosen ✓ A Scathing Review of We re Going on a Bear Hunt, aka The Children s Guide to Passive Suicide Before we go any further, a little context are plenty of children s books about self destructive impulses In The Cat in the Hat, the children are seduced into destroying their entire house, which they know full well will result in mother s unbridled scorn Franklin the Turtle is always doing stupid shit and then whining about it when he gets caught I don t have a big problem with those books They make sense to me because they follow three core principles it s ok to depict kids doing dumb shit, because their mistakes are generally inadvertent The mistakes characters make should teach children about human folly and the lessons we can glean from the err of our ways Finally, rarely, if ever, are the parents depicted as condoning the child s self destruction.
Not so with this piece of shit The parents lead their children gently by the hand right to the threshold of death s door They take them to a bear s cave as he is, presumably, in the midst of hibernation, when bears are at their most pissed off and hungry There are only two options that come to mind when I try to discern author intention here this book is either a treatise for parents tactfully trying to get rid of their kids, or the first in a failed series of books, the overarching theme of which is let s do stupid shit Yeah, they re going on a bear hunt, just like this zebra is going on a lion hunt Then there s the artwork The artwork is impressionistic, evocative of my youth, particularly the memories I have of using the excrement in my diapers to paint on my bedroom walls Much like the drawings in this book, I couldn t distinguish between the characters in my own imagery either Only two things could be said of it with absolution It stunk, and you can t bleach the images away once they ve been burned into your memory.
Aww How cute She s going on an alien hunt What a beautiful day Then of course there s the suspension of disbelief Our characters traipse across the four seasons and every environmental variation at every altitude possible, meet a bear, and then react in the most inappropriate manner possible They ve come equipped with absolutely nothing but ignorance and stupidity They cross rivers with potentially dangerous undercurrents They walk through snow in summer clothes This book is a treatise on everything you should not do while hiking And for all the reasons mentioned above, by the time I got to the end of the book, I f cking wanted the bear to eat the characters Except the baby That d just be cruel.
This is a perfect mix of rhyme and repetition, with a good measure of suspense thrown in Even better is the ease with which this can be read and performed you can walk around and have fun with it, and this is exactly what we need in my household I used this book as part of my storytime assessment at TAFE Throw on a hat and a pair of binoculars and we were off It s a great book to engage with youngsters and hopefully start off with a life long learning of books Reading is meant to be fun and this is a perfect example Go for it if you ve got some youngsters nearby.
We re all going on a bear hunt,Why are we hunting a bear For fur To eat To play marbles with We never find out It keeps me awake at night There was no gun They bought the whole family Maybe the bear is their uncle In this repetitive story, the reader is taken along on a family s hunt for a bear Walking through the grass, traversing a river, and pushing through a snowstorm are only a few of the obstacles they must overcome each with their own sounds in order to make it to the bear s cave Once they reach the cave and come eye to eye with this bear they quickly change their minds and rush back through all the obstacles to the safety of being under the covers Quite the tale and Neo enjoyed all the odd sounds as the family made their way through the book He did find it funny that they were determined to find a bear but ran off when they completed their task.

I know this book off by heart due to the amount of times I ve read it to the children at the pre school I work atI wanted to rate it I don t know what I d think of this now, if I were reading it for the first time But my kids and I sure did love it when they were young and younger So fun to read aloud, with all the drama I certainly never got tired of it over several dozens of reads.
.
Just read Bear s Day Out which, as I said there, is not nearly so wonderful but it did help me remember details of this, andof why I love it This is the brilliant book that belongs in every child s personal collection Oh that breathless run back home and the poignant denouement read this out loud even if you don t have a child Note how fun it is to read the trip out casually, adventurously and then the trip back fast, faster, until under the covers etc.
