Day 46 was My Mummy. Now, I still find a fair bit of gender stereotype in children's books, and I'm happy to say that this one shies away from it. The little bear's mum plays physical games and builds rocket ships, as well as cooking and bathing things - and that's nice to see. That aside, the pictures are lovely and the rhymes are sweet and unlaboured. This one's a winner.
Master A's verdict: Enjoyed the pictures and the rhyming phrases - perfect length, too.
