Comments about Are You My Mother?:
My 2yo grandson is a boisterous, rough and busy little person, who rarely sits still.
The first time I tried to read the story to him I was holding the pages open while he was struggling to turn to the next page, fortunately the board book format was tough enough to withstand the massive struggle taking place and we got to the end.
Now I just need to say "A mother bird sat on her egg, the egg jumped" and he's looking round for the book, it has been a wonderful "diffuse" technique when he needs distracting from something else.
The concepts in the story, a missing mother, a cat a dog and a cow also a scary thing are all understood by very young children. This one has been a favorite from way back to my own children's story time.
