As part of Parragon Book Buddy, we receive new children’s books on a regular basis, and this month we have received ‘I Love You, Alfie Cub’.
I Love You, Alfie Cub (RRP £5.99) is a lovely picture book by writer Angela McAllister and illustrator Daniel Howarth. Alfie Cub has new baby sisters and he thinks they’ve used up all of Mummy’s love, but little Alfie is determined to find her some more. So off he goes through the wood to look… until a wise friend tells him how to find it much closer to home.
I Love You, Alfie Cub is a beautiful illustrated book, ideal to be read by brothers and sisters-to-be before a new addition to the family arrives. This glorious new sibling story will delight and reassure that parents always have enough love for all their children, no matter how many they are.
Alfie reminds me of little man, he is like a young child, he wants his sisters to grow up so they can play together, but he get a bit anxious that they are not growing fast enough. Little man doesn’t have a sibling, but he often gets anxious when things are not happening fast.
The book helps little ones understand how tiring it is to look after new babies. It shows Alfie’s mummy getting very busy when the twin sisters were born, she spent most of the day feeding and looking after the younger cubs, but she still loved Alfie just as much.
