A world record attempt to celebrate 25 years of ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen!

I can’t actually believe that ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ – the classic rhyming tale of a family’s adventure to find a bear – is 25 years old.  Although it’s still not quite old enough to have been a book from my own childhood *cough cough* 😉 it still feels as though it’s been a […]
