We're going on a bear hunt

We're gonna catch a big one. What a Beautiful Day....
While we were at our travel group reunion in Savannah last month our friends the Palumbos had this book. Sophia took right to it and I knew right away we had to have it for her ever growing library of children's books we have been amassing since before her arrival into our family. Sophia LOVES to read and we do it several times a day always ending the day with the same three books.

Brown Bear a true classic children's book, Good Night Gorilla, an other classic

and a little book I found in our favorite book store in Savannah, Ga~ E. Shaver books.
The book is simply called Good Night.

The main character in the book looks very similar to Sophia so we sort of have renamed the book to be Good night Sophie. We read these same three books every night before bed. I have been adding in one more book that rotates in relation to the holiday or season. We just finished reading a boat load of valentines books and Chinese New Year books. We have now moved on the books about St. Patrick's Day and the Lantern Festival. Any way I got off track there after reading We're going on a bear hunt I knew we had to add this to the collection. I Love it for the illustrations and for the content of the book. It is a very simple story about some children and there father going on a bear hunt and the obstacles that lie in their way. I like this book because the adult in the book is a father. Which has prompted Sophia to want to "Go on a bear hunt" every afternoon with her daddy. She is so cute when he gets home from work she grabs his hand and says come on daddy we have to go catch a bear..going on a bear hunt daddy... I captured these pictures yesterday as Sophia and her daddy headed out on there bear hunt.... I love them..:)
