The Strongest Mum
This book contains lovely brightly coloured illustrations. The message is quite touching- the mother carries more and more things, and eventually just one small extra thing proves too much to bear (pardon the pun). Her family rally round to help mum recover, and it isn't too long before she is back on her feet, but the smaller bear try to help out a bit more! My youngest son in particular loved this book, and found the characters engaging, and enjoyed counting all the items mummy bear had to carry.
