You're all my favourites by Sam McBratney; illustrated by Anita Jeram

Whenever you have more than one child there will come a time (usually more than one!) when your children will start to wonder if you have a favourite.  At times like these it pays to have some comforting words to reassure them all and those comforting words are easy to find in the heart warming (comforting and reassuring) You're all my favourites from the team that brought you the much loved Guess how much I love you.

The bear family is made up of mother bear, father bear and their much loved three little cubs.  Each night they hear how much their parents love them, but they eventually start to wonder if their parents love one of them less or more - because one doesn't have patches, one is a girl and not a boy, and the last bear cub is the smallest.  In gentle loving words both parents reassure their children that they are all their favourites - and they know because of the wise words of the other parent!

This is a sweet, touching, and comforting read for children of all ages and is the perfect book to share as a family or one-on-one.  The illustrations are charming and a perfect match for the gentle and sentimental text.  A must read for any multiple child household - a gentle balm for any sibling rivalry and a warm affirmation that you love all your children.
