My Mother?

by the Brightly Editors

It’s almost Mother’s Day! Celebrate with this edition of Brightly Storytime as we read Are You My Mother?. P.D. Eastman’s classic story follows a baby bird in search of its mother. Before the baby bird hatches, its mother flies off to find some food. But while she’s gone, the baby bird springs from its egg and begins the search for its mother. From a cat to a hen, the baby bird asks everyone it meets, “Are you my mother?” – until finally being reunited with its own. This lovely story about the bond between a mother and child is perfect for reading with your little one!
