If you are on the lookout for a good book turned DVD check out the release of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt that came out on February 13th. Public Media Distribution, LLC released the DVD based on the book by the same name. Candlewick Entertainment, an independent publisher, has also published an adventure book to pair with this DVD. Both of these render great content domestically and internationally in children and adult entertainment.
This particular pack was fun in that you could have some screen time and then have some reading time or vice versa. You also have the original story to look at if you wish. We had lots of talks about the characters in the movie as well as facts detailed in the accompanying activity book. From the DVD I liked the lively colors and style of the characters. It was nice to see the easy going manner between the brothers, sister and baby and to see their love of being outdoors. How they bring to life that love is very sweet and charming to see on screen. The conclusion doesn’t quite go the way one would expect. I love the reaction of the older brother and love of the oldest girl. The book was very age appropriate even when providing factual information. It was simple enough for a child 3-8 years old to understand and simple for a parent to be able to discuss. There are plenty of pictures within the book for parents to point to when discussing information. It also gives activities and discussions that will push you to be outdoors for utmost fun.
The awesome We’re Going on a Bear Hunt comes with a book that will spur lots of talk of adventure and make you want to skip out the door for some adventure. The book alone is entertaining and when paired with this DVD it is just loads of fun. My son and I walked to our local park discussed animal tracks, waste, leaves and even indulged in a project for a bird feeder described within the book. The project was simple and required only items one already has in the home. The DVD is fun and friendly and runs a short 25 minutes.
