Am I Yours?
by Alex Latimer
When a little egg is blown from its nest, it doesn’t know what to do! It can’t find its parents and needs some help. Luckily, a group of friendly dinosaurs agree to help the egg find its way home. But if the little egg is to find its true family, first they all must figure out what kind of dinosaur is inside. What does that egg look like inside its shell? Surely, there must be a way to tell!
This fun tale from the creative mind of Alex Latimer is perfect for fans of Are You My Mother and little paleontologists alike. With Latimer’s signature bold art style and rhyming cadence ideal for storytime and reading aloud, readers will have no problem enthusiastically following along and guessing which type of dinosaur is inside the shell. This heartwarming story also has an entertaining portrayal of community and parental love that both adult and child can appreciate.
★ “This is a must-have addition to any children’s collection and a surefire crowd-pleaser at a dinosaur storytime. One might call it a roaring success.”
—Booklist, STARRED REVIEW
“Latimer’s rhyme scheme is wonderfully timed and plotted, giving a singsong cadence that is ideal for storytime. His illustrations are equally spot-on with bright colors and basic character design that give a gentle and caring feel… Sure to be a crowd-pleaser—highly recommended.”
