A father takes his kids out for a “bear hunt,” and they enthusiastically wade through obstacle after obstacle in search of their quarry. But when they finally meet up with a real bear, their enthusiasm suddenly turns the other way. Rosen’s rhythmic cadences are a delight, and Oxenbury’s illustrations brilliantly capture the story’s whimsy. Recommended for ages 1-5.
