Author(s): P. D. Eastman (Illustrator)
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.
Theodor Seuss Geisel -- better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss -- was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, and his first book -- And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street -- was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
