A different kind of bear hunt is underway this spring – one that is providing excitement for families isolated as a result of the global pandemic.
Stuffed animals are appearing in windows around the world for social-distancing safe “Teddy bear hunts” for children during coronavirus lockdowns.
The hunts are inspired by the award-winning 1989 book, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, written by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury.
It opens with the lines: “We’re going on a bear hunt. We’re going to catch a big one. What a beautiful day! We’re not scared.”
