P.D. Eastman’s Are You My Mother?

AreyoumymotherIn this adorable little book, a baby bird is about to hatch from his egg.  Thinking that her child will be hungry once he escapes from his shell, the mother bird flies off to find food for her hatchling.  But, alas, baby bird hatches before his mother returns which unleashes a series of events for baby bird as he searches for his mother.   Ultimately landing back into the nest he hatched from only to find his mother… and with food!

Are You My Mother? is a wonderful story for children who are in search of their own mothers.  It teaches them that a mother is someone who takes care of them and offers a sense of security in the home that they reside in.  It is a recommended read for blended families, adoptive families and foster families.
