    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 So I, somewhat mischeiviousl [...]

    Mother Bird wears a kerchief on her head because of femininity.

    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 sad topic [...]

    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 calls a Sno [...]

    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 Imagine my surprise when [...]

    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

    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.

    P D Eastman not only wrote but also illustrated Are You My Mother It is a story of a bird who hatches while his mother is out looking for food for him, and thus, he has no idea what she looks like So, he decides to go on a search to find her Every creature, piece of machinery, and mode of transportation he encounters gets asked the question Are you my mother , illustrating the special bond between a mother and her child Miraculously, he is returned home to his nest by a steam shovel just in time [...]

    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.

    especially delicious when read by mark miller

    I used to LOVE reading this book to my daughter I read it to her SO many times, and she loved it every single time.

    Love that the kitten just stares Dialogue phrasing cracked me up Snort

    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 Howeverw 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 mother, this bo [...]

    Very cute.

    A Little Bird s quest for identity16 November 2011 You can probably tell that I am currently back in Adelaide since a bunch of children s books are now appearing on my read list As my brother has kept all of the books from our childhood and since I did read them at the time I thought it might be good to go through them again and write commentaries on them as I did the last time I was in Adelaide Okay it does end up inflating my list of books that I have read, but as I said, I had actually read t [...]

    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 physically look [...]

    Some of my earliest childhood memories are of this book I can still hear my mom s voice making the voices as she read it to me

    Birds rarely let their eggs unsupervised Birds that fell out of the nest right after hatching die Why is this book lying to me
