We're Going on a Bear Hunt: Sound Book

Reviewed by Bob Walch
oin a family as they embark on a bear hunt. They will have to overcome a number of obstacles before they reach their goal and then ... well, then the family members may discover that they are not really ready for a nose to nose encounter with their furry friend.
he illustrations are varied and some are in full color while others are just in pen and ink. What really sets this 25th anniversary edition apart, though, is the interactive element added.
here are eight interactive windows that, when pushed, emit a sound that accompanies a given part of the story. This is fun and a young child will love the sound effects, but Mom and Dad might get a little tired of hearing the wind blow, a bear growl, and other story sounds.
o when you join this bear hunt, be ready for the diet of sound effects that will accompany it.
