Mommy Is That You? by Atsuko Morozumi

Likely inspired by P. D. Eastman’s classic Are You My Mother?, Mommy, Is That You? is a simpler story that features four little ducklings who go looking for their mother — the only trouble is, they don’t know what she looks like since they were separated from her before they were hatched.


While the basic plotline isn’t new, the author has executed it in her own style, with a fresh and sweet story that flows logically and which has a charm all its own — her softly luminous and detailed illustrations are particularly winsome, and the simple but amusing dialogue helps to give the book its own unique character.


Children will also enjoy identifying the different animals that feature in the story, as well as have fun predicting who the ducklings’ mother is — or isn’t.
