about

This easy-to-read, must-have classic about a baby bird in search of his mother is perfect for every day! 

A baby bird goes in search of his mother in this hilarious board book edited by Dr. Seuss. When a mother bird’s egg starts to jump, she hurries off to make sure she has something for her little one to eat. But as soon as she’s gone, out pops the baby bird. He immediately sets off to find his mother, but not knowing what she looks like makes it a challenge. The little hatchling is determined to find his mother, even after meeting a kitten, a hen, a dog, and a Snort. The timeless message of the bond between mother and child make this abridged, super-simple edition of P. D. Eastman’s Are You My Mother? a must for baby showers, beginning readers, and Mother’s Day.
P. D. Eastman was one of the stars of the Beginner Books line with beloved classics like Are You My Mother?; Go, Dog. Go!; The Best Nest; and more!From the Non-traditional book edition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for little ones! I'm not a fan of Dr. Seus but this one was a hit. Read this book to my daughter from 1yrs old and still to this day she loves it (she's now 3). If read with different voices for all the animals and funny sounds for the "snort" the baby bird encounters, any child will love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Are You My Mother? by P.D. Eastman I absolutely love this book!!!! This book never gets old and never stops being fun to read or hear. This is a great read-aloud for preschoolers, who will identify with the baby bird's fear at being separated from his parents. Its pacing is wonderfully predictable, with not-very-scary tension building to an exciting climax with the "Snort," and transitioning quickly to a deeply reassuring ending as the baby bird snuggles into the nest with his mother. It's also a good easy reader, although a student who has had the book read aloud in preschool may view it as babyish. I recommend the full paperback or hardback version rather than the abridged board book, which loses much in the abridging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolute all-time favourite! A delightful story about a little bird who hatches while his mom is away getting worms for him. He falls out of his nest and wanders everywhere looking for his mother until he is neatly returned to his nest by a bucket loader and reunited with his mother. Our children have always loved this one. It has P.D. Eastman's classic writing and illustrations. It has a simple storyline, repetitive so that our children can easily anticipate or recite the story for themselves. It's endearing and sweet, and a frequent request, especially at bedtime. #plumreview

From Our Editors

Hand picked by our Panel of Experts the IndigoKids Recommends program offers book suggestions designed to help you find the perfect book easily and confidently. Are You My Mother? is the winsome and, at times, very funny story of a baby bird who has fallen out of his nest. Kind of lonely and looking to imprint, the little bird begins an informal survey, asking all manner of creatures and things the all-important question: Are you my mother? Little listeners will giggle at the improbability of some of the bird's potential mothers -- a cow, a dog and even an airplane! Of course, in the end, a wonderful moment of recognition brings mother and baby together again.
