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 makes this abridged, super-simple board book edition of P. D. Eastman's Are You My Mother? a must for beginning readers.

This book is about a bird who loses his mom and feels scared and lost. It is a great book to talk about feeling scared and never giving up. This book is for ages 4-7. I got this book from the library. ( )

A little Bird sets put to travel until he finds his mom he won't stop asking anything that gets in his way.

This is another great book that I remember reading as a child. The adventure that this baby bird embarks on is both entertaining and funny. Along the way, the baby bird asks many animals if they are his mother, such as a hen, a kitten and a dog. He also asks a car, a boat and an airplane. It is endearing how the baby bird just wants to find his mother, while the mother wants to make sure he is fed.

"My daughter got this as a Christmas novel (in 2015) from her Grandfather and recently (in 2017) decided to use it as her first 1st Grade book report book. She has nothing but sweet words to say about it and it was the first novel she was able to read by herself.

It's a great learning novel and it's very silly."
