Happy Hunting

imageRead for RNIB Day and Walker Books are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury classic We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by organising their very own mass bear hunt. (We’re not afraid…)

The Biggest Ever Bear Hunt will take place on Tuesday 15th July and will consist of a reading lesson with renowned author Rosen.

This curriculum approved reading lesson – created by education specialist Yellow Door – will be suitable for ages three to seven. It will be fully accessible to children who are blind and partially sighted, so that they can join in the adventure too.


On the day, over 1000 school children will come together at Charter Hall in Colchester in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record™ for the biggest reading lesson.

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt – which lends itself to boisterous reading and dramatic action – is the perfect choice for a big group to enjoy together.

Everyone can join in the fun via a web stream of the event which will be broadcast live at http://www.jointhebearhunt.com/rnib (also available on demand after the event).

In order to take part, children and their teddy bear friends are asked to donate £1 each. Sign up your intrepid bear hunters here: http://readforrnib.org.uk/fundraise/join-bear-hunt/bear-hunt-registration-form/

All proceeds will go to Read for RNIB Day to support the RNIB’s vital work. You can find out more about what they do here http://readforrnib.org.uk/about/rnib/.

Calling all schools, nurseries, mums and dads.

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. Are you coming?
