Book Description

June 12 1960 Beginner Books(R)
A baby bird goes in search of his mother in this hilarious Beginner 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 P. D. Eastman’s Are You My Mother? a must for baby showers, beginning readers, and Mother’s Day.

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

Product Description

From Amazon

This is the classic from which many of our staff first learned to read, starting us on a path of unremitting bibliophilia. Are You My Mother? follows a confused baby bird who's been denied the experience of imprinting as he asks cows, planes, and steam shovels the Big Question. In the end he is happily reunited with his maternal parent in a glorious moment of recognition.

About the Author

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy the Board Book Edition May 13 2003
By A Customer
Format:Board book
This 1 star review is for the board book edition -- certainly the harcover gets 5+ stars; it is a classic that should be in every child's library. But why does Random House insist on abridging its catalog to get them to fit into board book format? The board book strips down a story that's already quite simple, and takes all the flavor and joy out of it.
Bottom line: if you want to enjoy "Are You My Mother?" go and buy the "complete" hardcover edition. If you need something sturdy that your child is going to teethe on, buy a Zwiekback biscuit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reading Nov. 26 2007
By David
Format:Board book
I love this book! I browsed throught it at a book store and the decision to buy it was almost immediat. It is really very emotional for a child to lose his mother, so I could not put the book down until the mother was found. It reminds me of anther book titled Why Some Cats are Rascals, Book 1, in which a group of cats got lost while looking for freedom...

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm fuzzy memories June 28 2004
Format:Hardcover
A fave of mine as a young'un, this tender tale will tickle the funnybone and touch the heart as the adorable little birdling asks various animals and items if they are his mother (who went to get food for him!)LOVED the scene with the earthmover! Those who said it was scary and about child abandonment need to lighten up. :-) Who hasn't gotten separated from their folks when they were little (like by wandering off in stores and such)A must read for everyone's childhood.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mother of All Children's Books June 22 2004
Format:Hardcover
Revisit the warmly inviting pages of PD Eastman's classic for a treat readers from four to forty-four and beyond will enjoy.
Whether it is your first time or your thousandth, the simple but delightful illustrations and familiar storyline of a little bird believing his mother is lost will wrap you in the cozy feel reminiscent of those half-forgotten feet-pajama winters and watermelon summers.
Not to be missed. Share it if you can with your favorite tot, but if not, read it to yourself. Read it aloud.
And remember: not every snort is your enemy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A BOOK BOTH MY SON AND I LOOOOOOOVE June 22 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This was one of my absolute favorite books as a child. Twenty seven years later I read it to my one year old, and when I picked it up for the first time to read it to him I still had all of the words memorized from that long ago. He has shelves and shelves of books, but every night this one has to be read or he won't go to sleep! A classic book that will be around for more years. What better story to read to your children than about a baby's and mother's love for each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars sooo cute! Aug. 19 2003
Format:Hardcover
I know who my mother is, do you? The main character in this wonderful book, a really cute, small, baby bird, doesn't know who his mother is! I LOVE this book! It is sooooo cute when he asks the car if it is his mother! If you like Dr. Suess's books, you MUST get this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Have a new little one? May 15 2003
Format:Hardcover
First of all, let me tell those of you who are having, or just had your first child, ignore the baby book advice that babies don't like books without bright colors. I am a mother of 4, and this book is in the top 5 books requested by the boys. It may look rather somber compared to the latest releases, but the kids love this one.
This book is a wonderful story of a little bird on a serious quest. He shows such determination and perseverence. There is no stopping this little bird.
The book is short enough to hold a child's attention at a very young age. Young children love books with a repetitive banter, and this book fulfills that criterion without annoying the adults.
It is a great book to snuggle up with, with a great, positive ending. I can bet that you will get years of reading out of this little book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sweet book for little ones! Dec 26 2002
Format:Hardcover
My 18 month old enjoys this book every night! I've never seen a book capture a young child's attention so completely. The "baby bird" hatches from his egg while the mother is away hunting for food. He wanders from the nest searching everywhere for his "Mama bird." We've made a precious memory making game from reading this story...I'll call out, "Where's my baby bird" and she'll answer, "Here I am!" A very sweet and simple book.
