My son has loved this book since age 2 (now 4 1/2). He has memorized it and he loves playing the part of Piglet and I play the part of Mama and the other animals. A truly touching, cute and interactive children's book.

Even though the illustrations were as wonderful as Piglet and Papa, I didn't love this book quite as much. What I loved so much about the book with Papa was the message that even if your parent gets angry with you, they still love you. This book didn't have a message like that. Instead, it was already-been-done plot of losing your mother. I did like how each animal offers Piglet comfort, and how Piglet and Mama do all these things together at the end. This is really a warm and fuzzy book, but it ...more

This book is a great book that my mom read to me when I was little, printed by Scholastic in 2007. I now read it to my baby sister all the time. My favorite part of this book is at the end when piglet who is trying to find his mom throughout the book finally finds her and she does all the other fun things that the other animal's moms were doing with there children. I can say I also love the back of the book that is Illustrated with Piglet and his Mama looking up at the sky. This is a wonderful b ...more

We LOVE this book! So sweet, so simple.

It's really lovely how all the other animals are so willing to let Piglet join them for some fun and caring, "But Piglet wanted her mama," so her quest continues.

When she finds her mama, the reunion isn't over the top, and the ending isn't all sugary and sap.

We keep getting this one from the library, so I think it's time to get a copy of our own.

Beautiful, warm illustrations make this book. Simple story about a lost piglet who encounters several other kinds of animals while searching for Mom. Each animal asks piglet to do a different activity -- roll in mud, dance in daffodils, etc. But piglet keeps looking for Mom. Finds her and there is a nice second mention of several of the activities mentioned earlier. Story is not boring, but something is missing that would have taken it to that next level of "great."

Every child at one point in there lives has lost there mama, just like baby piglet in the story. On piglets journey to find his mother he encounters other farm animals, who try to occupy him, but all he wants is to find his mother. By the end of the story, piglet does find his mama. Personally I think the illustrations could be brighter and offer more to the reader. Overall, the story is cute! I would recommend this story for children Pre-K.

Piglet is searching for his mom and even though all the other animal mommies offer for him to join them and their babies he wants his mom! The illustrations by Stephen Michael King capture the warmth between a mama and her baby beautifully

When Piglet can’t find her Mama, no other mother can comfort her in this colorful picture book. The playful farm animals and loving relationship between Piglet and Mama make this perfect for sharing with the very young at bedtime or in a Pre-K unit on family.

"Are You My Mother?" formula

Would make a cute, short, early elementary play.
When Piglet cannot find her mother, all of the barnyard animals try to make her feel better, but Piglet wants nothing but Mama.

One part spare text, two parts repetition, three parts winsome illustrations, four parts creative movement prompts makes this a “high five” good time, complete with a happy ending.

As everyone has said, a new take on "Are You My Mother?" Reminding kids that there is nothing like their mothers, but really didn't stand out.
