There are some cute moments (when the parents reassure the baby bears that they're all their favourites and the baby bears think "that was a good answer" and go to sleep), but sometimes this tips over into saccharine ("biggly or littly, it makes no difference"; and I have a relatively high saccharine threshold); and most of all, I cannot fucking believe they had the girl bear worry that she wasn't good enough because she was a girl and not because e.g. she didn't have patches (that was her big brother), when it would have functionally changed nothing to have it be one of the boy bears worrying that he wasn't as good because he wasn't a girl. Part of the problem, Sam McBratney! ( )

You’re All My Favorites
“You’re All My Favorites” by Sam McBratney is another of my favorites. I have three boys who battle over being the favorite and this book puts a spin on it that no child can argue. The baby bears questions “Who is your favorite? We can’t all be the best.” As Mommy and Daddy bear explain to each bear why they are the “The Most perfect (first), (second), and (third) baby bear that anyone has ever seen” the reader is engaged. All children with siblings, struggle with sibling rivalry and this book pushes readers to deal with this issue; however, the suspense of the answer is heartwarming. It allows readers to feel loved for their own uniqueness and personal qualities. The illustrations are big and fill the page with scenes of the bears loving their cubs. Even the detail in the parent bear’s eyes shows love. The big idea of this story is to deal with children wanting to be the favorite. ( )

This books talks about how the parents love all their baby bears just the same. The parents said that all the baby bears are all the best. They are perfect in their own ways.

I found this book to be very simple but very powerful. There are three baby bears that are referred to as the most wonderful baby bears in the whole wide world but by being told so they began to wonder what if one was better than the other. These are all questions that siblings have wondered. My sister is only 16 months older than me and I know we always used to fight over who mom's favorite was. This book is a fantastic gateway to talk about this topic. I mentioned earlier that I loved how simple this book was and that goes for the illustrations. Each bear is just a little different but that changes everything in the world for them. One of the bears mentioned that 'I'm only the littlest, everybody is bigger than me!' and he worried that that may be the reason why he wouldn't be the favorite. I can see this being a very important and special nighttime book to young readers. ( )

Mommy and Daddy Bear convince three worried cubs that there's plenty of love to go around in this comforting new tale from the incomparable team of Sam McBratney and Anita Jeram.

So that night the three baby bears asked their Daddy Bear,
"Which one of us do you like the most?
Who is your favorite?
We can't all be the best."

Every night, while tucking in their three cubs, Mommy and Daddy Bear tell them they're the most wonderful baby bears in the whole wide world. But one day the three little bears start to wonder: How do Mommy and Daddy know this is true? And even more worrisome to each sibling: What if my parents like my brother or sister better than me? From the team who brought us the beloved Big and Little Nutbrown Hare comes
a tale that answers a timeless question with the ultimate reassurance — and offers the perfect way for parents to remind their own little cubs how very much each one is loved.
