The bear went over the mountain

The song "The bear went over the mountain" is a particular favourite on one of Charlotte's in-car CDs (other parents will probably be all too familiar with the concept of never being allowed to listen to their own choice of music in the car, and probably have a car cluttered with kid-friendly CDs like mine). 

John Prater's book attempts to story-fy (is that a word? It is now!) the song and of course, it's natural for kids to want the story to follow the rhythmic flow of the song so they can sing along. The story doesn't though, but it's fairly charming nonetheless and definitely one for daddies who remember being clambered over by their toddlers. 

Charlotte's best bit: Baby Bear climbing on Daddy's head. 

Daddy's favourite bit: Baby Bear tickling Daddy's toes.
