STATEWIDE — A children’s storybook is coming to life, sort of.

Families are stuck inside because of the coronavirus and social distancing, but a children’s book from 1989 might soon have them at least going outside for a walk.

“We’re Going On a Bear Hunt,” by Michael Rosen has started a trend around the globe, with people placing teddy bears in their homes’ windows to create a scavenger hunt for kids.

It’s reached one town in Indiana, Bourbon, where dozens of teddy bears are hiding waiting to be found.

While taking walks or drives around neighborhoods parents and their kids can hunt the bears just like in the story.

If you want to start a bear scavenger hunt in your neighborhood, others have been started by posting the idea to neighborhood Facebook pages.
