Children's LiteratureA mother bear reassures her only cub that he is loved. They look at a photo album and see pictures of preparations for his birth and homecoming party. Mama Bear tells of Only Cub's special traits such as being patient, reliable, and knowing what he wants. His desire to keep things in order is shown by not wanting food on his plate to touch each other. He also has a great imagination, which offsets being alone. The text is framed on a soft yellow background. The photos in the bear's picture album have captions and corner photo mounts. The faces of the bears look very human. This is a "Birth Order" book by a father-son team. Only children and their parents may find affirmation and an increased sense of identity as they compare their experiences with those of Only Cub. 2005, Fleming H. Revell Publisher/Baker Publishing Group, Ages 4 to 8.
