P. D. Eastman's books. They're quite a hit! In this particular story, a baby bird searches for his mother, interviewing the animals or machinery with whom he comes into contact. As his selections become odder and odder, the kids laugh harder and harder. Will baby bird ever find his mother?
P. D. Eastman is right up there with Dr. Seuss as far as I'm concerned. His sense of humor strikes just the right chord with the I Can Read age group. And he doesn't get mundane. In fact, it's a trip down memory lane reading (or listening) to these universally favorite reads.
My Two Sons. Let me just tell you, this little story brings the house down with laughter! And everyone especially loves the surprise ending. However, it introduced a whole new problem. Yep, it's an I can't live without it favorite. So her kids moped about while we enjoyed it, and my kids moped about after we gave it back. Thank goodness Nana came to the rescue with Are You My Mother? So you know what I'm now on the look out for . . . more P. D. Eastman books!
