To celebrate the launch of the DVD version of the Michael Rosen classic story, lots of bloggers will be holding ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ parties this Thursday, and you can join in too.
We’re going on a bear hunt film review
The classic story is now a beautiful family film that was one of the big hits on television this Christmas, bringing all the magic and wonder of Michael Rosen’s story to life. The story itself is a very simple one, a family, and their dog, go on a bear hunt – and they’re not scared. They face lots of rough terrains along the way, from rivers and mud, forests and a snowstorm. They have to go through all of this in order to find the bear, but they face it all as an adventure. However, when they reach the dark cave, and finally meet a bear, it seems they are scared after all. We are left with a bear all alone, with children everywhere wondering if maybe the bear was in need of a friend too.
It is a really wonderful film, with lots of repetition that young children love to join in with, and beautifully drawn illustrations that will delight those who love the book too. The voices are instantly recognisable, with Olivia Coleman and Pam Ferris amongst those bringing the characters to life, whilst the music is fabulous, a new song by George Ezra, one of the brightest new stars to emerge in 2016.
We’re going on a bear hunt Twitter party
You may have noticed the badge in the sidebar that says I am going to be hosting a #Bearhunt party on Thursday 16th February between 4-6pm. To help with the party celebrations, I have been sent a party box that contains a great selection of games and goodies that will help the party go with a swing.
The box includes quizzes, games like pin the tail on the bear, biscuits to create bear faces, cut out bear ears and many other things.
You can get involved with the party on Twitter on Thursday, there will be lots of competitions with spot prizes and you can follow at the fun, by following @UKMumstv and looking for the hashtag #bearhunt.
The party promises to be a lot of fun, so make sure you put Thursday 16th – 4pm until 6pm in your diary.
