Just one note on the story itself. I agree with the other reviewers that it is full of excitement and adventure, but I would be hesitant to say it's scary. It could certainly be so for some kids, so parents take care and exercise your own common sense and caution, but my daughter has loved the book and never been frightened by it since she started having it read to her when she was about 24 months old. Otherwise, I agree with the other reviewers in every way. The rhyme, the pictures, the sound effects, everything about this book just comes together magically and wonderfully. I highly recommend it.
Was I surprised to find that he LOVED it. He waves his arms and kicks his legs during the "we're going on a bear hunt" chant pages and also gets super excited at the end when they enter the bear cave and hurry back home. This book is written in such a way that even a young baby can understand the emotion and excitement.
This is one of the books that I enjoy reading to him as well. I'm sure that we will be reading this book for many years to come.
