Very disappointed to receive this book with several missing pages! My son enjoys this book at school, and I thought it would be a nice surprise for him while he’s home during our statewide COVID-19 lockdown. We sat down to read the book and were so bummed when the story ended abruptly due to missing pages. I’m not going to even try to reorder this book, will be looking to purchase others to keep us occupied.
For those that said that the story is boring...we do a lot of hand motions to make it fun and they LOVE it. We clap to the beat. We stomp through the “mud” and we pretend to splash our feet through “the river”. We fall down through “the forest” and we always end the book by covering our heads with a blanket like we are hiding from a bear.
The storyline of “hunting a bear” doesn’t bother me. It’s a story about a family going for a walk while pretending to hunt for (look for) a bear, not expecting to find one. They’re not trying to literally hunt down a bear. When they do accidentally find a bear the family in the story run back through the terrain they’ve just come through. For my kids, that means we get to stomp, fall over, splash, etc all over again, but quickly the second time through as the family in the story runs home. All 4 of my kids have loved it from about age 2 on up. It’s a fun story if you use your imagination and make it fun.
My 6-year-old can read it on her own, but I will sometimes sit with her and my 4-year old, and we will take turns saying parts of it since it is so easy to memorize. Sometimes they will act it out as well.
There is also a cartoon on Amazon Prime that brings the illustrations and story to "life", so I recommend checking that out.
More recently, I gave a copy as a gift with a small teddy bear, and it was well received.
You really can't go wrong with this one.

But you know, these people have probably never had a decent bowl of porridge in their lives.
I bought this after seeing the animation version of the story on TV and I was reminded just how lovely and fun the story is. My daughter loves hearing the splishy, sploshy, and the squelch, squeeze in the story. I’m in the process of making a story sack for the book to engage her further. It’s a fun story and one that will continue to be loved for years to come.
When she started reading this book she didn’t say much but now she has started copying the sounds ‘swishy swishy’ ‘tiptoe tiptoe’ etc.
We’ve got lots of nursery rhyme and first word sounds books but none are as popular as this one and it isn’t because she’s seen it on tv or YouTube.
The book is so well used, many of the pages are torn (they are quite big pages for little hands to turn) but I’d much prefer that than an unread book!
