Why did the bear go over the mountain? To see what he could see! Now children can go with Bernie Bear as he travels OVER the mountain, IN a cave, UNDER the ocean, UP a tree, ACROSS the desert, even AROUND the moon! Not only can children see what he can see, they can snap photos of it, too! Highlighted words to the classic song “the Bear Went Over the Mountain” let children read or sing along.

Play begins by choosing from a playful map of eight different scenes, each consisting of two pages of interactive, explorable options and characters. Teaching begins with directional words, exploration of geographical differences, and stimulating understanding of habitats of a wide range of wildlife.


• VOCABULARY: Teaching directional words - this vocabulary enhances a child’s ability to give and follow directions as well as to speak precisely.

• MUSIC: Practicing singing along with the highlighted words in this favorite nursery song.
•Relating music to various geographical and language arts vocabulary.

• SCIENCE: Aiding in word recognition with spoken and written names of animals and geography.
•Teaching geographical differences and the diversity of wildlife found within each.
•Encouraging a sense of stewardship in caring for our environment and natural habitats of wildlife creatures.

The kids love this one!

This one is our favorite of the bunch, my students really enjoy it. I like the use of consistent lyrics as you explore each section of the map. The kids really enjoy taking "real" pictures too. A nice mix of activities and a good way to work on basic concepts and vocabulary. Very cute.

Fun app for young children

A fun app for young children working basic concepts such as over, under, around, up and down. Bernie bear visits lots of locations and the child moves him the the right direction (following musical notes) to the accompaniment of " the bear went ….. the mountain to see what he could see," There are fun mini games associated with each concept too,

Great for 18 months to 7 years

My 18 month and three year old kids are playing it constantly and LOVE IT! But, my 7 year old really enjoys it also. Even this old dad likes the Apollo references. Great app, accurate nature info and pictures, has taken the place of Big Top Circus as our new favorite from LoeshWare.
