Book of the week!

Welcome to this week's book of the week!

This week's book is one that we've had on the shelf for a little while but not read until this week. 

You're All My Favourites by Sam McBratney tells the story of a family of bears. 

Each night Mummy and Daddy bear tell the three baby bears that they are wonderful but the bears start to wonder if they can each be wonderful bears. Surely one of them is better or more loved than the other? How do Mummy and Daddy bear known that they are wonderful?

Mummy and Daddy bear explain that they can each be different and still be wonderful. It doesn't matter if they have patches, are a boy or a girl, are little or big.

You're All My Favourites is beautifully illustrated by Anita Jeram. The pictures are neutrally coloured but continue to be engaging. The story is a lovely tale of how being different is OK.

As it tells that siblings can be loved fairly I also feel it would be a great story to for those about to have a sibling. 

Our copy of the book was a gift but it's currently available for £5.99 from Amazon. Take a look here.

Happy reading!
