A closer look at the 1 book all teachers NEED, 'we're going on a bear hunt'

Updated: Jul 23, 2022

Whether you are starting teaching in early childhood or trying to streamline after years of teaching like I was, then there are some book titles you will NEED. I will cover my number 1 in this BLOG and share the ways I have extended on the book and why I LOVE it.


Here are my 10, I have them in my 42 litre group times container . I have owned more than 4 copies of each over my 20 plus years of teaching and am a huge fan of board books now as they are harder wearing and last longer.



1. We’re going on a bear hunt

2. Dear zoo

3. The very hungry caterpillar

4. Gruffalo

5. Owl babies

6. The rainbow fish

7. The 3 little pigs

8. Tiger who came to tea

9. Colour monster

10. Giraffes can’t dance
