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.
Sam McBratney is the author of the best-selling GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU and many other books for children. Of this book he says, "People often ask authors where their ideas come from, and often authors say they don't know. But I do know about this one. Once upon a time, my wife and I had three small children — two boys and a girl, just like in the story. And when they were young, we used to tell them a story very like YOU'RE ALL MY FAVORITES." Sam McBratney lives in Northern Ireland.

Recently, her son asked her which one of the children in their family was the best — himself, his brother, or his sister. She explained they were all equal in her eyes, and he came back with
another question: "Okay, then, who's the cleanest?" Anita Jeram says, "There's always one in every family." She lives in Northern Ireland.
