Are You My Mother?
Are You My Mother? | P.D. Eastman
65 posts | 147 read | 4 to read
A baby bird goes in search of his mother in this hilarious Beginner Book edited by Dr. Seuss. When a mother birds egg starts to jump, she hurries off to make sure she has something for her little one to eat. But as soon as shes gone, out pops the baby bird. He immediately sets off to find his mother, but not knowing what she looks like makes it a challenge. The little hatchling is determined to find his mother, even after meeting a kitten, a hen, a dog, and a Snort. The timeless message of the bond between mother and child make P. D. Eastmans Are You My Mother? a must for baby showers, beginning readers, and Mothers Day. Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

Happy Mother‘s Day to all my Littens celebrating today; and to those who find this day difficult, I am thinking of you & sending you love, peace, and tranquility today. 💜 #happymothersday #youareloved #youareseen #begentle

julieclair This is a wonderful reminder that there are all kinds of moms, and that this day can be a difficult one for many people. 5mo
MoonWitch94 @julieclair Yes! It‘s something I never thought about until I lost my Dad in 2013, and suddenly Father‘s Day became difficult. And now so many of my friends are step-moms, having fertility issues, or have lost babies, etc. It puts parenting/parents in perspective. 5mo
julieclair @MoonWitch94 As our life experiences expand, so does our understanding. The wisdom of years. Or at least that's the hope, right? Unfortunately, for some, their compassion narrows as the years go by... 5mo
MoonWitch94 @julieclair I like to think of it as a “privilege” of sorts to be able to have that expansion of understanding. Because, as you said, for some their compassion narrows as they progress through the years. It‘s sad, really. 5mo
julieclair @MoonWitch94 I love the idea of understanding as a privilege. Albeit a hard-earned one. 5mo

3. 3 brothers (one of them a twin). I would‘ve said two brothers and one sister, but she came out as transgender last year.

4. I believe this is the first book that I remember being read to me. Or it could of been Where the Wild Things Are.

“Are you my mother?” Is about a sweet little birdie. His new mother, thinking her unhatched egg will stay in her nest, leaves her baby alone to find food. https://www.britannica.com/art/childrens-literature. This MF CL book utilizes UDL principal to go along with it would be 3.2 (highlight patterns, features, and relationships

MFlowers Dr. Suess is a great choice to pair with UDL Principle 3.2! You can always find patterns in his writing. Great website paired with it, too. I think this is a great book choice to add to any classroom library. 2y
faithcella19 @MFlowers thank you!!! 2y
faithcella19 relationships with mother, you can always find patterns with doctor suess books and EL strategy number 11 (place language in meaningful content would be beneficial. Teaching vocab etc Faith Cella #UCFLAE3414SP21 2y
DrSpalding When you say CL do you mean classroom library? That was not one of our codes but I think that is what you mean. This makes for a great storytelling and read aloud as well. Your English learner strategy aligns nicely. 1y

This adorable MF children‘s book written and illustrated by P.D Eastman is a super cute children‘s picture book. Follow the little baby bird on his journey to reconnect with my mother. Are you his mother? #ucflae3414su20

ashleyshugars This book would best serve as a RT in a classroom! Download this already completed script here: https://secondgradefun.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/are-you-my-mother-readers-the.... This will comply with UDL strategy 5.1 and ESOL strategy 17. 2y
LauraLeighn THis is such a great book and so easy to make into a meaningful lesson. I loved the resource you found, it will defiantly come in handy if I ever use this book in my class 2y
DrSpalding Readers theater could work nicely. I have also seen this performed as a storytelling. One of the readers theater/English learner strategies that align nicely is providing short readings for homework. Sending home the scripts for them to practice is a valuable and authentic reason to read at home. 2y

Are You My Mother? is a great MF book for new readers. This book is about a baby bird that has hatched when his mother was away getting food. The baby bird goes on an adventure to find his mother asking every animal he comes across if they are his mother. www.betterlesson.com has a great lesson plan to go with this story. Have the students read it in PR, then have them make a diagram with all the animals and objects he came across.#UCFLAE3414SP20

“Are You My Mother?” is a fiction picture book written by P.D Eastman. My mom use to read this book to me all the time as a child. I absolutely loved it! It‘s about a baby bird looking for his mom after she went to find him food. He is so determined to find his mother, that he asks all of these different animals if she is his mother! It is so cute, you must read it. I would use this book as a read aloud in my classroom.

alexblanco The UDL strategy I‘d use for this book would be to offer alternatives for auditory information because there may be some hearing impaired students in the classroom. An ESOL strategy I would use would be to give enough wait time for second language learners to respond to questions. 3y
alexblanco This is important because it might take them longer to translate what you asked them in their head or to fully comprehend it, so by extending the wait time, it will maximize their opportunity to answer questions. 3y
alexblanco https://betterlesson.com/lesson/593822/are-you-my-mother This is the lesson plan I would use for this book. I loved the idea of the bubble map! It would be great for audio impaired students because they would be able to physically see the board and what we‘re doing. It also fosters collaboration which is another UDL principle. #ucflae3414f19 3y
haleyklein I love this book! Thank you for sharing your insight on how to use this in a classroom! (edited) 3y
DrSpalding What kind of fiction? This is a classic that can be used in a variety of ways in your classroom. 3y

“Are You My Mother?” by P.D Eastman is a silly F story about a newly hatched bird who wanders around looking for his mother who left to find food for him. He asks a cat, a hen, a dog, and many more if they are his mother! This story makes a great S or RA that young readers will definitely laugh at! #UCFLAE3414F19

abbie-cadabbie The lesson plan I chose includes a writing activity that follows the story. This activity includes the use of a bubble map which is great for visual learning. https://betterlesson.com/lesson/593822/are-you-my-mother 3y
abbie-cadabbie The UDL strategy I chose is to guide information processing and visualization (3.3) This is because of the visual learning in the provided lesson plan. The ESOL strategy I chose is to encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships (30) 3y
Alexush I loved this book as a kid! This book is great for visualizing and getting kids to listen to descriptions. 3y
DrSpalding You are correct! I have seen this as a storytelling and read aloud and both strategies work. The bubble map and various other graphic organizers are not only English learner compliant and universal design compliant, they are fabulous teaching tools to enhance comprehension. 3y

One of the sweetest books. A little bird just wants to find his mom who has gone out searching for his food.

He comes across lots of animals and other things but in the end he knows they are not his mother... and of course she reunited with him on the final pages.

So endearing, and as a child, this has been one of my favorite books and one I can remember my mother reading.

What were some of your favorite books as a little one?

Happy Halloween Littens!🎃Hope your's was/is fabulous. My work group read books at a nearby school this morning. I read one of my childhood favorites-the tagged book to 2 classes of 1st graders which was very fun. They gave us pics from the library, here w/ my Frappuccino co-worker & our 3rd-grade escort. Excuse my rained-on hair & lame barista costume. My team was a Starbucks at work & I was less than creative using my old apron for dress-up.👻😉

My mom loved the lonely; the downtrodden; the people and animals who didn‘t get a fair shake in this life; the ones that society throw away because they‘re poor, sick or addicted. She knew what it was like to be broken. On the day she got her cancer diagnosis, she cried. And then she answered her phone and listened patiently to her friend who was going through some problems. She was someone who made others feel valued even while she lay dying. ❤️

The tagged book was the first time I remember ever being so moved that I cried over a book. I could safely claim that these are some of the titles that have truly turned me into the reader that I am now. Wrote a review of these books here: https://wp.me/pDlzr-98U

Things I never thought I would call my mother for at age 34:

“Can you come help me finish getting dressed? I tweaked my back really bad while I was getting dressed, and Joe can‘t leave work for another couple of hours.”

She dropped everything to come help me get dressed, took me to the doctor, got my meds filled, got me lunch, walked my dog, and got me settled back in bed. She‘s amazing, and I love her to the moon and back. So grateful.❤️❤️❤️

Thinking of the characteristics of the partridge in a pear tree, I thought of the poor little baby bird from Are You My Mother.

They have a number of similarities (shown above), and by the end of the book/song, they are both getting the teensiest bit annoying.

IamIamIam We're old school parents, @LiteraryinLititz! We really worked hard to find books we loved as kids to read to our kids. I took the classics, my husband headed up 80s pop culture books! 😂😂😂 5y

Not Book-Related Baby Bird Update ?(See last night's post) Morning check in found the momma bird on top of the nest (she flew off as I approached) & the baby bird I returned to the nest snuggled in with its sibling-so hopefully it will be OK. Max stopped pouting & chewing me out (he's a vocal cat) so at the moment he's off the "really bad" list ?but since this is now his 4th bird murder or attempted murder, he's a serial birderer??#catsoflitsy

Five years ago this little pup came into this world and brought unimaginable love and joy into our lives 🐾🖤🐾 I can't even begin to remember what it was like not having this goofball in our lives. He used to dig holes straight down in the ground and get stuck upside down 😂 he's lovable and playful and full of so much personality he makes my heart full 😍😍😍 so HAPPY BIRTHDAY ASHER 🎂🎂🎂 and to answer your question, yes I am your mother 😘🐾🖤

I and 2 others threw my daughter a baby shower today, my first grandchild will be born this fall 😊 The most important thing that I wanted to do was to have every guest bring a book and fill the most important thing that I wanted to do was to have every guest to bring a book and fill the basket! Here are just a few of the books that will help start baby Adeline Elizabeth on the path to loving books! #raisingareader #baby #nonnietobe ♥️📚👶

TheHeartlandBookFairy @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks , thank you! I did the same thing 25 years ago when I threw a shower for my sister when she was pregnant with my niece and to this day it's probably been my favorite thing about the shower ♥️ you see, I've always been a lover of books too 😊 5y

The best part of single parenting is scoring DOUBLE the school assignment hand-crafted tokens of love and affection 😂 Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful moms out there, and to me too I suppose 😬
