I loved this book! The illustration are wonderful and the story itself is beautiful. As a middle child, I grew up comparing myself to my siblings, especially my sisters. I really connected with all three of the little bears in this story and their question of who the parents like the most.

Then second baby bear begins to wonder The mother and father bears have tree baby bears. Then second baby bear begins to wonder if mother and father loved her brothers more because they were boys.
Finally, third baby bear was worried because he was the shortest of them all. The baby bears unable to shake the feeling, asked who was their favorite baby bear. Mother and Father bear responded by telling each baby bear why they were special and their favorite. That night they all slept soundly as the most wonderful bears.
The main theme in this book is acceptance and accepting your flaws. Everyone is unique and special in their own way. An alternative theme could be conflict in families. I would give this book three stars.
You're All My Favorites by Sam McBratney (2004, Hardcover)
My first reaction when reading this book was that it was kind of boring. The illustrations and the cover are very mild in color and detail. The majority of each page is white. While reading, I found it to be a heartwarming story that I could see myself reading to my children as a parent. However, it is limiting because only children may not be able to relatable to it.
I thought the idea of talking about insecurities within a family was unique and important. The was relatable for me on some level because I have two younger siblings and growing up we always wanted to be the favorite. I would recommend this book to families with young children.
