    If you are a middle child then you will know exactly the feelings middle bear experiences as this tale is told He is the second of three brothers He is too young to hang out with his older brother and too young to do things with his baby brother Everything about his life, his activities and his sibling placement in the family is middle sized He longs to feel special and noticed by the others around him His father often goes out with his older brother to collect walnuts and almonds while his mother naps with his younger brother leaving him to read a book by himself He begins to feel depressed and sorry for himself However can he get himself noticed and rid himself of the middle child syndrome blues The tears he shed can not wash away his sadness and feelings of unworthiness.One day his parents fall ill and urgently request that the three brothers go off on a mission to fetch them some willow tree bark to cure their maladies Nervous and apprehensive the three leave to go to the mountains to grant their parent s wishes The exciting turn of events is that the mission can only be completed by guess who Yes, middle bear He becomes the hero of the day and finally is celebrated and fussed over by everyone in his family Hurray for Middle Bear What a great book about family values and how important it is to make every child feel like they are number one The illustrations are truly unique and very kid friendly I highly recommend this charming heartwarming story.

    Middle Bear is the second of three brothers When the brothers go out into the forest to do various errands, Middle Bear is either too big or too small to be of any help His older and younger brother both seem to be the right size But Middle Bear seems to always be in the middle.He seems to go unnoticed And he longs to be different, to be as special as his brothers.Susanna Isern s little book is perfect for children to may seem that there is no place for them And it is great for helping children experience some empathy for the child who reads alone or who cries because of his or her sadness.Read at

    For older middle kids and bear fans this is a longer, wordier book Middle kids will likely relate to middle bear.If you are reading it to a younger child, it may help quicken the reading pace if you skip some of the middle words.

    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 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.

    A really sweet book about a middle bear He is not big, he is not little, he is just middle sized and does not feel special at all When mother and father need help, it is middle bear who is able to complete the task needed This is a great book for children who are the middle child and are trying to find their niche It is also a good book to discuss with the older and younger child so they can empathize with the middle sibling The illustrations are quite interesting They look like children had created them which would certainly appeal to children They were cut paper, crayon, chalk, coloured pencil and Quite an interesting addition to this story I would definitely recommend it to families where the middle child is feeling a little left out A great book for family and school libraries The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.

    I have three boys and I know the reality that the middle child faces everyday They often get overlooked or feel like they don t get treated like the others because they are stuck in the middle, neither big nor small This book brings to light that struggle and finds a wonderful way of showing how special a middle child can be.I enjoyed reading this book to my three year old, but he didn t seem very interested in the artwork TO tell you the truth, I wasn t to intrigued by it myself It looked like something my Seven year old would do as a school art project I think the artist was going for something that I didn t find interesting It wasn t my style If you have a middle child give this book a go Its a fun read Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

    Everything in this young bear s life is middle sized his bike, his dinner, his bedtime, even the tears he cries when he is sad about being the middle bear When his parents become ill, the three brothers need to retrieve something to help them from the top of a high mountain They face a dangerous situation and he discovers that being the middle is not so bad after all This story highlights that every size has their own benefits and that you should feel happy and proud no matter the size The book illustrations are a bit dark, but I really enjoyed the style of them They are very child like Not being an artist, I don t know the technical term, but the pictures look cut and pasted, giving depth Nice story.

    Thank you Net Galley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.A wonderful book for all the middle children in the world As well as all the older and younger children who need to have better empathy for their frequently invisible sibling Middle Bear feels lost between the older and younger children in the family There are times it even makes him feel sad It is not until his not too big and not too little size is perfect in an tricky but important situation, that he sees the value of being in the middle The clever illustrations kept me guessing the various mediums used Cut paper, watercolors, chalk, charcoal, but of acrylic

    A really sweet book about a middle bear where everything in his life is middle sized and he feels less than special The writing is lovely and shows that middle children are just a great as the eldest and youngest which I know lots of middle children sometimes don t feel I m the youngest of 3 I would definitely recommend it to families where the middle child is feeling a little left out The illustrations are interesting and different to other children s books I d be interested to see it in print rather than on a computer screen I was given this book in exchange for an honest review Thanks Netgalley and Kids Can Press.
