In the tradition of the children's classic "Are You My Mother? ", a heart warming story by a breakout team Speaking to every child who has ever been lost, this warmly illustrated book is perfect for bedtime and story hour. Poor Piglet has lost her mama! All the other mother animals offer help, the duck with a cuddle, the sheep with a daisy chain, the dog with a roll in the mud, but nothing will do for Piglet but to find her mama. OIIIIIINK! she cries finally in despair, and OIIIIIINK! There you are! cries her mama. Reunited, they cuddle, make a daisy chain, roll in the mud, all the things the other mothers offered, but now, with her mama, Piglet laughs and joins in.

We picked this one out at the library mostly because of the cover and the title. It looks and sounds like a really cute and adorable story. I am really glad we read it because Piglet and Mama is a pretty cute story.
 In this book, Piglet cannot find Mama, so she searches the farmyard for her. She sees a lot of other farmyard animals, they tell her that Mama isn't here and try to comfort her. But Piglet only wants to find Mama. I love that it reminds me of Are You My Mother.  I think one of my favorite things about this book are the illustrations. They are lovely and fantastic.
We really enjoyed reading Piglet and Mama and definitely recommend giving it a read!
