Are You My Mother? P.D. Eastman. 1962. 64 pages. [Source: Bought]
First sentence: A mother bird sat on her egg. The egg jumped. "Oh oh!" said the mother bird. "My baby will be here! He will want to eat."
Premise/plot: A baby bird wanders around looking for its mother in P.D. Eastman's classic early reader. The bird makes the rounds asking ARE YOU MY MOTHER? to every one he/she meets....every THING she/he meets. (The bit with the SNORT might just be my favorite bit.) Will the bird ever be reunited with his/her mother???
My thoughts: I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this one. I do. Especially the bit where the bird asks the SNORT if it is his mother. Highly recommended.
