The classic illustrated children's book, ideal for reluctant readers and children just beginning to read on their own.
This beautifully illustrated story of a baby bird's journey to find his mother is a timeless classic from beloved author P.D.Eastman.
Reluctant readers and children who have just started to read on their own will love joining the baby bird on his quest as he asks everyone (from a kitten to a cow) and everything (from a plane to a tugboat) that he meets, `Are You My Mother?'
Beginner Books are designed to encourage even `non-reading' children to read. This Green Back Book will boost the confidence of children who have just started to read on their own.
Some Beginner Books are simple stories, others are hilarious nonsense: both types have been designed to give children confidence and make them want to go on reading. Perfect for both boys and girls of ages 3 and up.
P. D. Eastman was an author-illustrator who created many children's books, including Are You My Mother?, Go, Dog. Go!, and The Best Nest. Trained at the National Academy of Design, he enlisted in the army in 1943 and was assigned to the Signal Corps Film Unit-which was headed by Theodor Geisel, who would eventually become known to the world as Dr. Seuss! After Geisel later approached him to write for his new Beginner Book series, Eastman published his first book, Sam and the Firefly. Since then, he has sold more than 30 million books and become one of the most beloved children's book authors in the world.
