The book "Are you my mother" which is supported both by words and illustrations focusing strictly on a baby bird's search for his mother is a book written for children to enjoy. It is a story of a baby bird and his mother. The mother bird lays an egg and thinks that the baby inside the egg will feel hungry. With this thought in mind the mother bird leaves the egg in the nest and flies away in search of food for the baby bird. The fun in the story starts when the egg in the nest hatches while the mother bird is away.
The new born baby is confused as he is alone and wonders where his mother is. The baby bird's first words were, "Where is my mother?" and he jumps out of the nest, tumbles to the ground and start looking for his mother. The funniest part of the story comes when how the baby bird not knowing how his mother looks like start approaching different animals and asking each of them, "Are you my mother?" He asks a kitten, a hen, a horse, a buffalo, dog and a cow if they are his mother, but to his despair he receives the same reply from everyone, a "No".
The baby bird even calls out to a boat and plane thinking them too be his mother. At last he climbs on top of a power shovel thinking it to be his mother, but a loud "SNORT" from the shovel makes the bird say, "You are not my mother! You are a SNORT!" However, the baby bird gets stuck in the shovel and is unable to get away because the shovel grinds into motion.
It is at this tragic moment that his fate changes and he is dropped back to his nest by the grinding shovel, just when his mother is returning home with food. The mother bird and the baby bird are reunited and then the baby bird narrates his adventure to his surprised mother.
