We’re delighted to present this bilingual Yiddish/English edition of Michael Rosen’s classic picture book.
For brave hunters and bear-lovers, the classic chant-aloud by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury. Follow and join in the family's excitement as they wade through the grass, splash through the river and squelch through the mud in search of a bear. What a surprise awaits them in the cave on the other side of the dark forest!
Translated by Helen Beer, a native speaker of Yiddish and a Yiddish teacher at University College London.
