ideal to me, you could play with either sibling But I can imagine that it might be difficult for some children and a book that encourages discussion about this would help children struggling with such a situation.I loved the idea that the three bears could help their sick parents, and the illustration with the three of them tending to bed ridden parents is adorable.Unfortunately I m not a great fan of this style of artwork and I m mystified as to why the colours are so uninspiring Maybe these childish illustrations attract children, I d be interested to know.This would be a great book for a pre school library, to share within families.I could also imagine it being the first of a series of Middle Bear adventures I have three boys and I know the reality that the middle child faces everyday
