What do you call a baby...? is an entertaining way for all children to learn the nouns that describe some of our iconic Australian baby animals.

Baby frogs are called tadpoles, but what do we call a baby goanna, a baby eagle, or a baby echidna? This stunning title introduces young children to their amazing names — hatching, eaglet and puggle.

Bin Salleh's exquisite illustrations and pastel colour palette captures the tender bond of an animal 'parent and baby' and makes this little book a truly delightful journey of discovery.

 




This beautiful board book reflects Australia’s rich multicultural society and shows two-year-olds doing all the things they love—digging at the beach, finger painting and more. Each page is brightly coloured with funky Aussie images and lots to learn.


A delightful picture board book dedicated to toddlers across Australia. These vibrant photographic images of toddlers in action reflect Australia's multicultural community




Counting our Country is a bilingual counting book from Jill Daniels, an Indigenous artist who lives in SE Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory.

Jill’s paintings of animals found on her country celebrate her distinctive style and playful use of colour. Children will love counting the animals from 1 to 10 as they turn the pages.

Each double-page spread features the name of the animal in Ritharrnu, Jill’s Aboriginal language, and in English. A guide on ‘How to pronounce the Ritharrnu animal names’ appears at the back of the book and encourages readers and young children to see if they can say them.

Counting our Country recognises the value of developing cultural literary by introducing Indigenous language and art in the early years.
