In Emilee's opinion:

We're Going on a Bear Hunt DVD was fantastic! I appreciated the length (25 minutes) of the DVD. It wasn't too long and it didn't feel too short. It was just right to capture the bestselling children's book by Michael Rosen. The characters were sweet children who wanted an adventure. The earth is such an amazing place and we can go on so many adventures to appreciate its beauty. I loved flipping through the Adventure Field Guide as well. It was filled with ideas, field facts, safety tips, field activities, recipes and more. There were also a variety of sections including High in the Sky, Down in the Ground, Father Afield, Tiny Plants and Tall Trees, Incredible Creepy-crawlies, Extraordinary Creatures, Keeping on Track and the Big, Wide World. My favorite parts were the Bear Hunt in the sky, yummy baked apple recipe, and some of the field facts were incredibly interesting like, "The poop of cave-dwelling bats is called guano. It is an excellent fertilizer for plants, and people even pay for it. Wow! Overall, I was impressed with the DVD as well as the field book. I will definitely be bringing the book on many of our adventures.
