This book is well written using repetitive words that are small enough for children to understand. The book has a funny concept with a small bird trying to find his mother. Along the way, he encounters many different objects that he thinks is his mother. The dog was not his mother, and neither was the steamshovel, so where is his mother? My 21 month old daughter just loves hearing this story over and over again. She likes the pictures with all the different animals and also likes to identify them. I remember this book from when I was little, so I knew that it would be a "must have" for my daughter.

Durch die vielen Wiederholungen des Satzes: "Are you my mother?" können sich die Kinder diese Struktur gut lernen und zum Ende des Buches übernimmt vielleicht ein Kind diese Frage.
Die Kinder sind emotional sehr mit dem Buch verbunden. Möglicherweise kommt es zu Verlustängsten, auch wenn es im Buch gut endet. Aber das Buch bietet eine gute Diskussionsgrundlage, das Ende könnte man ja zunächst offen lassen und verschiedene Optionen überlegen.
Die Illustrationen sind sehr ansprechend und deutlich.

When I was a little child my mother use to read me the book, Are You My Mother. It is a very cute book! At the begining of the book a little baby bird can't find his mother, he doesn't even know who she is or what she looks like. He goes around asking all kinds of things like bulldozer and a steam engine if they are his mother. At the end he finely finds her. I think every mother should read this book to there child, because I know that I enjoyed it when my mother read it to me.

My sister's family from the USA visited us last Christmas, and Troy, my nephew was reading this book. My daughter, Hannah borrowed it and enjoyed it a lot, that I decided to order a copy for her! The characters are so cute and the wordings are clear and easy to understand. A must buy for moms with kids 1 to 5 yrs old!
