When I was in first grade, my sister and I found out we were adopted. I instantly sought comfort in this book. We were told we were adopted because in class we had to write down where we inherited our facial features and hair from. I couldn't say where I got my curly hair from and when my teacher told me I had to get curly hair from someone in my family, I came home from school on a mission to discover where it came from knowing that I was the only one with curls. The idea th

Recommended to Ann by: I remembered it from childhood. I loved it when I was little.
I absolutely love this book!!!! This book never gets old and never stops being fun to read or hear. We LOVE this book!

For years Thea pretended to "pop!" from the egg. She still does sometimes. And this book is how she first learned that animals EAT other animals..

She knew birds caught worms. But it wasn't until I asked her what the baby bird was going to DO with the worm that I realized she didn't know. She said the worm was going to live in the nest with the baby bird. Like a pet.

Strange story, the main character was VERY dim which did not suit the story.
It at first seemed as though it would be a breath taking story started with the age old question. "Are you my mother?" But his repeated asking of this question (To other animals and inanimate objects that could not possibly be his mother.)I found slightly disturbing. It also contributed to my fear that this newly hatched bird, had mental retardation brought on by his fall from the nest.
This book also brings up another s

Are You My Mother, a simple, well-loved classic, opens with a mother bird sitting on her egg. When the egg begins to move, she leaves to find some food for her anticipated baby. In her absence, the egg hatches, and the hatchling sets out in search of his mother. He asks a kitten, a hen, a dog, and a cow if they are his mother, and each says "no." He sees a car, a boat, and an airplane, is disappointed that none of them are his mother either. Finally, he finds a construction digger, which he call ...more

The second book I ever read to my daughter, and the first (and one of the only) non-rhyming books she enjoyed.

It's a book of traveling and education, meeting others that are different from you. Baby bird, as they're known to do, falls from the nest and wanders aimlessly for the mother it has yet to meet. Dog, cow, chicken, backhoe, baby bird can't find its mother until kismet allows the benevolent backhoe to replace it back into its nest and mother bird comes flying back in the nick of time! Wai

This was my nephews favorite book growing up. It had special meaning because I was raising him during his own mother's issues. At the time, they prevented her from being there. It broke my heart that maybe this little boy was confused about which of the women in his life was actually his mother. Maybe it is why this story meant so much to him. All I know is that he would crawl into my lap, with his battered copy of this book, and ask me to read it to him, over, and over again.

This is a wonderful story that I absolutely adored reading over and over again to my kids. It has great sonorities to the words and is lots of fun. It is a great way for especially small kids to learn that just because mommy disappears for a little while, she will always come back - and sometimes with a tasty treat - yummy worms!! :)
A must for kids!

Are You My Mother? by P.D. Eastman

My grandson, Gauge, and I read this book together recently. He is only 4-years-old and I noticed that this book is a little hard for him to follow. It also doesn't engage him as well as other books in the same genre have in the past. I still like the book, but for the real young ones it might be a skip.
Apparently this is a popular theme, as we've seen it several times in many books. I thought it was a little long for the topic, or maybe I just wasn't that interested. But it looked like my kids felt differently. Both my preschool and school aged kids enjoyed it and were engaged throughout.

Even though I am older then this experience level I can still read it even though Its a baby book. I will read this book to my nieces and nephew I don't really care about reading a baby book to a "baby". My mom read this book to me when I was little so it is cute for that matter and also cute in the fact when my nieces and nephew grow up I can show how many books I read to them and maybe they will read it to there great-grandchildren,grandchildren, nieces, and nephew so it is cute.

Marg bought 4 of these books for the upcoming grandmonster & asked me to mail them. They're in a nifty 4"x6" thick cardboard format, unlike the ones we had for our kids. Hopefully harder for little fingers to tear. I had to read them first. I remember this one well. Pretty good, although not the best. Cute pictures, though.

So I now have two conflicting views on this book. It is very much a beloved classic in children's literature. And I have very fond memories. It is a simple story with lots of repetition that children tend to gravitate to. A simple color palette, mainly muted browns with pops of yellow and red, with some gorgeous illustrations. that I'm going to be an adoptive mother, this book can simply not be in my household. And now that I am looking at it from the view point of an adoptive mot ...more

“Are You My Mother” is an outstanding children’s book. It is written by P.D. Eastman and is told by a baby bird who falls out of his nest. The little bird's mother feels the egg moving around so she goes out to get food for the newborn.

This book is based on a baby bird’s struggle to distinguish who his mother is. His mother flew off to find food for her baby before he hatched. She wanted to be prepared for his arrival and it was her maternal instinct to do so. “He will want to eat”. When the baby bird hatches he automatically thinks he is alone and sets out to find his mother. He is quite advanced for such a new baby bird as he has the awareness that he should have a mother. He has no idea who his mother is or what she physica ...more
