Are You My Mother P.D EastmanFirst it starts off with the mother bird who sits on her egg The mother after she hears it jump tells herself that her baby is going to be here and may want to eat Then, she tells herself she should get something for her baby bird to eat Then she leaves her egg and hopes it stays in her nest where she left it She flies off to find food The baby bird hatches He does not understand where his mother is so he goes to look for her Without the ability to fly as he can not yet fly , he can walk, and during his search, he asks a kitten who does not speak , a hen, a dog, and a cow if they are his mother, but none of them are Refusing to give up, he sees an old car, which he realizes certainly cannot be his mother In desperation, the hatchling calls out to a boat and a plane but neither responds , and at last, climbs onto one of the teeth from an enormous power shovel When he calls it his mother saying, Mother Mother Here I am, Mother , it belches SNORT in response from its exhaust stack This prompts the bird to say, You are not my mother You are a Snort I better get out of here As the machine shudders and grinds into motion, he cannot escape I want my mother he shouts At that moment, the Snort drops the baby bird into his nest to where the baby bird slides down from the Snort easily and into the nest on the tree The baby bird finally was home Just then, his mother returns The two are reunited, much to their delight The mother bird asks the baby bird if he knows who she is The baby bird says, I know who you are You are not a kitten You are not a hen You are not a dog You are not a cow You are not a plane, a boat, nor a Snort You are a bird And you are my mother 2012 1381 12 9645595398 20 1381 24 9647973152 1390 64 9786001270444 1395 24 9786005225990 1396 24 9786009681884. When a Mother Bird leaves the nest to find food for her yet to hatch egg, little does she know that the Baby Bird will be on a mission to find his mother right off the bat With no one in the nest, Baby Bird begins a search around, seeking out his mother Not a kitten, a hen, a cow or a dog and on goes the search for his mother Further explorations prove fruitless, but Baby Bird is soon reunited with his mother and finds all the happiness he could want Neo chose this as his final bedtime book, having heard it before in a previous collection He thought it funny to see all the different mother possibilities that Baby Bird had before locating his rightful mother. A baby bird is look out for her mother.No, her mother is not missing How can adult go missing But this baby bird has decided to go on an adventure and until it finds its mother, there s no stopping her Sweet and cute story image error A cute, little, tiny tiny bird is out and about to explore the world What is she searching Whom is she looking for Of course, it s her mother, whom she wants to find out Funny and innovative 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 mischeiviously and after recovering myself, told her He s going to EAT it She was horrified The look on her face was awesome Because, really Who da thunk it animals are food She thought they were all friends Yesterday, in her animal book, there was a picture of a lion in mid air about to tackle a gazelle or some such animal She said Look He s going to climb on his back Like I climb on yours The truth is a little reality than I want her to have so I said Yup Just like you climb on mine. Mother Bird wears a kerchief on her head because of femininity. 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 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, chick abandonment The process of an adult bird leaving a new born ALONE in the nest for hours at a time a risky and dangerous thing to do to say the least.In short this story is not despite popular belief a children s story There is far too much chick endangerment Birdy social services should most certainly take a look into this mother s endangerment of her chick Note if you took this review seriouslyyou missed the point
