Synopsis

Am I Like You? by Laura Erickson, Brian Scott Sockin

Join mom and her son on one of their regular nature walks, as they play their favorite outdoor game, 'Am I like you?' As they happen upon and observe different birds along the trail, each with their own unique personality traits and behaviors, they consider which one they feel most like on that day--a journey not just of trail and terrain, but also of exploration into self-discovery, affinity and identity. As the story unfolds, young children will have the opportunity to see parts of themselves in the wonderfully-illustrated feathered friends, and ultimately be able to take a little quiz on a special dedicated title website, to see which birds they are most like. From renowned birding author, Laura Erickson and the Cornell Lab Publishing Group's very own President and author, Brian Scott Sockin, Am I Like You? is a wonderful new picture book that empowers parents and children to explore the world of birds together. As with all Cornell Lab Publishing Group books, 35% of the net proceeds from the sale of Am I Like You? goes directly to the Cornell Lab to support projects such as children's educational and community programs.
