Are You My Mother?

Are You My Mother?

by P. D. Eastman Illustrated by P. D. Eastman

When Baby Bird hatches from his egg, his mother is off looking for food. What's a bird to do? Go find his mother, of course! Fallen from his nest, he sets out to look for her and asks everyone he meets — including a dog, a cow, and a plane — " Are you my mother?" So begins Baby Bird's hilarious, and at times very touching, hunt for his mother.
