Purchased on Mighty Ape

Having them in hard book form is an added bonus for little one. A classic from years ago, I had this book, my children had this book and now my grandson has it

Wonderful story and a bonus that it's a board book, so even the very young can enjoy the baby bird finding his mummy

"Easy read"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Nice little small board book to throw in the bag and take places if need to. Easy read. I think my daughter will enjoy this more the older she gets.


A mother bird leaves her egg in the nest to go look for some food. While she's gone, the egg hatches, and the baby bird sets off to find his mother - but he doesn't know what she looks like. His search leads him to ask a variety of animals and machines, "Are you my mother?" Finally, a crane deposits him back in his nest, where his mother is waiting. Just the right amount of tension and the happy and secure ending make this an extremely popular story.


"In P.D. Eastman's classic Are You My Mother?, a baby bird sets out to find his unknown mom, asking the title's question of all he meets--kitten, dog, boat, even a bulldozer. The illustrations capture both the humor and poignancy of the quest, which speaks reassuringly to many children's worries about parental loss. As kids, my siblings and I wanted to hear this story again and again." Children's Literature
