Each Christmas there’s something special on TV which we all make a point of watching together as a family. This year We’re Going on A Bear Hunt will be shown on Channel 4 at 7.30pm on Christmas Eve. If you miss the Christmas Eve premier, you can catch the repeat on Christmas Day at 5:25pm.
This screen version of the much loved children’s book by Michael Rosen features the voices of Olivia Coleman, Mark Williams and Pam Ferris. The DVD of We’re Going on A Bear Hunt is scheduled for release on Monday 6th February. The DVD includes a pair of bear ears and some bonus DVD extras. You can watch a sneak preview of the Bear Hunt trailer here…
This beautiful hand-drawn animation is made by Lupus Films, the team behind festive favourites – The Snowman and The Snowdog. This adventurous story is sure to become another Christmas classic.
To celebrate the festive premier of this gorgeous animated story, Walker Books sent us some Bear Hunt goodies and a copy of the book. We’ve added We’re Going on A Bear Hunt to our festive reading collection. We are loving reading this adventurous and beautifully illustrated classic again, knowing we’ll be watching it on Christmas Eve.
This beautiful bear to go with the book is made by Aurora. The cuddly bear is available from a range of retailers including Foyles, Waterstones and Amazon. Additionally for Bear Hunt fans, there’s an app which is available to download on iOS and Android devices for £2.99. You can splosh through the river, tiptoe through the cave search for crabs on the beach and even play with the friendly bear himself.
We’re Going on A Bear Hunt is an enchanting story of adventure, perseverance, optimism and a love of nature. We love reading this story at home and it’s a real modern classic which adults and children love in equal measure.
We’ll be watching it this Christmas Eve. Will you be watching too?
