Looking for a fun way to introduce the Scots language to your pupils? Reading a story they already know will help to provide the context children need to learn new Scots words. Translated by Scots language expert Susan Rennie, We’re Gangin on a Bear Hunt is a lively recreation of Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury‘s classic picture book. Get ready for a big adventure, as a family of brave bear hunters trudges through muckle forests and skirlin snawstorms, claggie mud and a deep cauld river in search of a glowerin bear!
