Are You My Mother?
"Are You My Mother?" by P.D. Eastman is a favorite of Ann Grybko, retiring assistant director of the library. It was published in 1960 and has been enjoyed by children ever since. While the mother bird is away from the nest looking for food, the baby bird emerges and asks all he encounters, including inanimate objects, "are you my mother?" Like Mo Willem's recent "Elephant and Piggie" series, this book works as a great read-aloud for the toddler set, as well as a great first book for the beginning reader. I loved this book as a child, and my kids loved it as well. A true classic.
