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.


Dingo is headed somewhere looking excited, and the other animals want to know where he's going. Dingo won’t say, so the others follow along in hot pursuit – two nosy numbats, three flying frogs, four burrowing bilbies … The animals are in for a surprise when Dingo’s final destination is revealed on the last page.

As well as being a counting book, this is a seek-and-find story. There is one aboriginal artefact plus one non-native animal on each colourful spread
