We're Going to Find a Big One
Get ready to go on a bear hunt of your own! Follow the story, acting out each page. Some ideas:
- How would you make your way through the long, wavy grass and the deep, cold river?
- Would you pick your feet up high while going through the thick, oozy mud?
- How would you walk through a big, dark forest full of scary sounds? Make your way through the story and see if you would do it like the family in the book.
Don't forget to pack some Cherry Almond Butter sandwiches. They work equally well as sustenance or Bear Bait. Then, while you are out on the hunt, collect some dirt to try Squelch Squerch Finger Painting.
