Are You My Mother?
By P.D. Eastman

Review by: Laura Wood

     A mother bird is sitting on her egg in her nest.  Suddenly the egg jumps, and mother bird realizes that her baby is about to break out of its egg and will be hungry.  Away she flies for food.
     While the mother bird is gone, the baby bird comes out of its shell.  The first thing he says is, "Where is my mother?"  He starts looking for her but doesnít see her in the nest.  The baby bird wants to find his mother, but forgets that he canít fly.  He falls down, way down out the nest.  He starts to walk to find his mother. He doesnít know what his mother looks like, so he walks right by her.
      He comes upon a kitten, a hen, a dog, and a cow.  The baby bird asks all of them the same question, "Are you my mother?"  They all reply no.  Before he continues his search, he stops to wonder if he really does have a mother.  He is positive he does, so he goes on.
      Next he comes upon other things, an old car, a boat, and a plane and asks if any of them could be his mother.  He gets no reply, so on he goes.
      The last thing he meets up with, is a great big excavator.  He is so sure this is his mother.  Finally he has found her!  He runs excitedly up to it, climbs on and says, "Mother Mother, here I am mother!"  The excavator says to the baby bird, "SNORT".  Quickly the baby bird realizes he has made a mistake.  This is definitely not his mother.  The excavator begins to move and the baby bird is in big trouble now.  He cries out, "I want to go home, I want my mother!"
      The excavator puts the baby bird gently back in his nest and his mother comes home.  She asks him if he knows who she is.  After the baby bird tells his mother of all the adventures he had looking for her, he says, "You are bird, and you are my mother."
      This is a terrific book for little ones age 18 months and up.
