Bookbug Book of the Month: Bear and Hare Go Fishing by Emily Gravett

Bear and Hare Go Fishing by Emily Gravett

ISBN-13: 978-1447277095


Bear and Hare are off on a fishing trip, with nets and rods at the ready. Bear loves fishing! Hare seems more interested in his picnic. But after a long wait, the two adventurers catch more than they expect in this tale of fun, friendship and fishy goings-on.

'Bear loves fishing! Hare isn't quite as convinced as Bear manages to fish anything but a fish. This beautifully illustrated board book from Emily Gravett will delight both young and old with its simple story and richly drawn characters. I read it again and again and still found something new in the illustrations each time. A great one for sharing.'

- Emma Dunn, Early Years Operations Administrator
