Are You My Mother? is a cute picture book about a bird who hatches to find that his mother is not there. He goes on a journey to find where his mother is and meets a lot of different creatures along the way.
The book is very well written. It uses easy to read language to tell a beautiful story. The cadence of the words is well timed without resorting to rhymes. The drawings are simple and beautiful, allowing the child to focus on the objects that the words are referring to. My favorite (and I imagine other's as well) is when he finds the "snort." It is funny and the language just has a hilarious rhythmic flow to it.
This is part of the early reader series for good reason. There is a lot of repetition in the language, once the child learns the word dog they will get to practice it over the subsequent pages. It is also a good book for tacting if you are working with young children, or children with language delays.
