Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K–The creators of Guess How Much I Love You (Candlewick, 1995) offer another reassuring tale. Each night, Mommy and Daddy Bear tuck in their three beloved cubs with the same phrase, "You are the most wonderful baby bears in the whole wide world!" Well, even little bears are discerning enough to doubt hyperbole and so they question their mother's empirical basis for this observation. Her reply, "Because your daddy told me," mollifies the youngsters until they begin to question their own ability to measure up to the wonderfulness standard. The first worries that he doesn't have patches like the others, the second that she's not a boy, and the third that he's the littlest. They approach their father with the query, "Who is your favorite? We can't all be the best." Daddy Bear explains that they are, repeating how Mommy Bear exclaimed over each of them at their birth ("the most perfect first baby bear," "the most perfect second baby bear," etc.). Satisfied, the trio is able to drift off into peaceful slumber. The quiet, loving tone of the text is echoed in the muted shades of the watercolor-and-pencil illustrations offset by soothing cream-colored backgrounds. While this story will not be enough to put to rest children's basic insecurities and endless jockeying for their parents' most-favored status, it does inject some unobtrusive bibliotherapy into a deftly presented bedtime story.–Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA

The illustrations are very appealing as well.

It address the issue that each child is unique and special in their own way, and loved the same by their parents inspite of their differences.

This book is a wonderful explanation if you have more than one child at how they can be completely different but they are all special and loved. It shows that no matter if they are a boy or girl or have different features they are all loved unconditionally. I love this book and so do my girls ages 4 and 2. highly recommend!

I received this as a gift for my triplets. It is wonderful at illustrating that it is possible for them to all be your favorites because of, not in spite of their differences!!!

Sometimes it is hard for children to understand exactly how a parent can love each of them the same. It relates well the anxieties they may feel and reassures them, that love is limitless and generous.

We got this book when our second child was born. I think it has helped our older child cope with the loss of attention. He can understand that even though he has to share his parents now, it's not because we don't love him anymore or that the baby is our favorite. It's a fabulous book!

This book is really amazing. The illustrations are lovely. It really explains in simple terms to a child how they can each be called Mommy's "Favorite". I think this is such an important concept for children with siblings. They wonder where they fit in the family and if someone else is loved more by Mom or Dad. All of my children enjoy this story and we've been reading it for years. It is a very sweet story and I highlight recommend it to everyone. One of my cousins just had a baby and I sent it as a present for the new big brother who's been feeling a bit jealous. I hope you enjoy!

I bought seven copies of this for my seven adult children. It is a delightfully illustrated, simple and beautiful children's book about the unique gifts that children have in their parents' eyes. My wife and I plan to write individual inscriptions and present them to our children to read to their children.

Anita Teram's lovely drawings are a winning addition to Sam McBratney's moving story of a Mommy Bear and father who tell their cubs that each is the best baby bear. But the siblings are growing and question how they ALL could be favorites of their parents. You're All My Favorites is gentle story of love and favoritism evolves with a simple, warming message.

My husband bought this book for our 2 1/2 yr old for Christmas. He will soon be a big brother and this was the perfect subject matter. He loves the story and illustrations.
