    Middle Child Blues.My personal reaction to this, rather dull coloured book was only 3 stars, but I shared it with my 2 year old granddaughter and her enthusiasm raised the star rating to 4 It usually takes her a few reads to feel friendly towards a book, but as soon as we d finished this she was asking for Bear.It tells the story of Middle Bear, who always seems to be either too small or too big Being an eldest child, I guess I also missed the significance of being stuck in the middle, it seemed 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 th...
