Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

When Baby Bird hatches from his egg, his mother is off looking for food. What's a bird to do? Go find his mother, of course! So begins Baby Bird's hilarious, and at times very touching, hunt for his mother.

Children will love this deluxe cloth edition of P. D. Eastman's all-time favorite. Soft and snuggly pages, complete with an adorable plush baby bird, let children interact with each wonderful character our little hero meets as he asks again and again, "Are you my mother?"

My six-month-old son loves this book. It is a wonderful stroller toy because it keeps him occupied for a long time. The cover is soft and snuggly; plus, the baby bird can be put in different little pockets throughout the book--so my two-year-old daughter loves to "read" this book to the baby.

One caveat: because it's so plush we let our son play with it in his crib and he got the string loosely wrapped around his neck. He's fine, and he still loves the book, but I certainly wouldn't let him play with it unsupervised again.

We adopted a little girl from abroad. She is still a toddler and too young to discuss adoption. We got her this book to see how she would react. It has become her favorite that she MUST have read to her every night. We feel it is helping resolve issues she might have with being adopted. She especially likes that she can take control of the little bird herself and move it through the scenes to its mother.

I have loved this book every since I read it at my sisters to my little nephew. Now I have my first child and when I was looking for her first cloth book and saw this I knew we had to have it! It is so adorable! The cover is really soft and I washed it first thing (you never know were it was before right?) and it held up great and no color change with the washing and drying of it. My 8 month old daughter LOVES it! You do have to be careful as the bird is on a string, I read that in another review. So I only let her 'read' it when I am with her, we absolutely love the story and the fact it cloth is even more lovable!

As a child I loved the regular version of this book so my mother bought the cloth version for my baby girl. I was a little skeptical - thinking that this wasn't a story that a child a soft book age would enjoy (not enough rhythm or rhyme). My little one has loved this since I introduced it to her at approximately 6 months (should have done it sooner). She loves playing with and inspecting the birdie. She loves looking at the bright colors (especially the red which is a color that babies see early). We know that this is one of her favorite things because she takes it with her when she rolls or scoots. I see the complaints about the original story being abbreviated. I understand where the person is coming from because the original story is better but I accept this for what it is - a first book for a baby. In that way it is absolutely perfect. I was not familiar with cloth books before my mother got this for us and I am so glad that she did. I am going to try to post a picture or two (she is holding the book above her head while laying on the floor - absolutely adorable).

My children loved this story when they were little so I was very glad to see it in a soft book and bought it for my 7 month old grandson. He is fascinated by books and will sit still for a very long time while I read to him. Of course, sometimes he likes to also chew on the books and fling them around so buying him a soft, squishable book was a no brainer. Having the baby bird attached with a ribbon and backed with Velcro so you can move him from page to page is a clever idea but doesn't really work for my grandson. He thinks the baby bird is a toy and just wants to grab the baby bird and stuff it in his mouth. This might be a great idea for an older child, but I think cloth books' target audience are usually babies and younger toddlers who won't be able to grasp the concept of moving the bird from page to page. I put the book away and will bring it out again when he's a little older and can understand that the "toy" baby bird is part of the story.

Book includes a little baby bird that is attached to the book which you insert into some of the cloth pages. I love this book. Another good cloth book is the original Pat the Bunny book.

This is a very fun book! Our son (11 months) lights up whenever we sit down to read it together. He loves taking the baby bird out of the egg and then through the story. (We did cut baby bird off the ribbon because it seemed sort of restrictive.) I read the original version at a bookstore the other day, and I think that the cloth version is better. It sticks to the action and moves more quickly. I would recommend this for any baby's book shelf.

This is the cutest book ever! I remember the story from my childhood but the cloth book is so colorful and engaging. I definitely recommend this book!
