The bear hunt bringing smiles to kids’ faces around the globe

We're going a bear hunt

The children’s story We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, by Michael Rosen, has been brought to life around the world as a way to bring a little joy to kids in isolation during the global coronavirus pandemic. 

The classic book tells the tale of a group of children who are going a bear hunt. They plan to “catch a big one” – but first, they must make their way through a bunch of tricky obstacles.

And now the new version of the game has people all over the world placing teddy bears in windows for kids to “hunt”.

After all, despite strict social distancing rules, it’s still okay to take a walk around the neighbourhood (as long as you keep your distance from others).
