Today is Michael Rosen’s birthday. We thought we would celebrate by taking a look at three of our favourite books by the bestselling children’s author.
Michael Rosen is an acclaimed poet whose many books have won a number of prizes. We're Going on a Bear Hunt has sold over 8,000,000 copies worldwide and he was Children's Laureate between 2007 and 2009. A popular broadcaster, he has presented Radio 4's Word of Mouth since 1996. But he also has a PhD in education, five honorary doctorates and is Professor of Children's Literature at Goldsmiths, University of London. His monthly letter to the education secretary 'Dear Mr Gove', published in the Guardian, has become required reading for parents and teachers.
We’re going on a bear hunt! Through the long wavy grass, the thick oozy mud and the swirling, whirling snowstorm! But will we find a bear today? We’re Going on a Bear Hunt won the Smarties Book Prize and was highly commended for the Kate Greenaway Medal. With atmospheric rhymes to repeat out loud and a huge surprise at the end, this lyrical favourite from former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen deserves to be a part of every childhood.
