Swishy, Swashy Experiences for the Bobtails at Children 1st @ Derby Road

‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury is one of the Bobtails favourite books. Published in 1989, this award winning children’s picture book is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Thousands of children have enjoyed the story of dad taking his children on a walk which is imaginatively transformed into a bear hunt.

The staff brought the story to life for the children with the creation of a series of sensory experiences. With long wavy grass to swish through, thick oozy mud to squelch through and a deep, cold river to splish and splash across, the Bobtails were rewarded at the end of their journey by finding a very friendly bear waiting for them.
