Another winner from talented WA author/illustrator Frané Lessac, this colourful, informative book about Australian baby animals is sure to entertain and delight young children as well as adults. No-one can resist a cute baby animal and this latest title has great appeal. Sturdy and square, with an eye-catching cover, it is perfect for parents and grandparents to read aloud. Lessac’s trademark simple illustrations are accompanied by a short description and a fascinating fact about several of our unique Australian species. From wriggly pythons to noisy cockatoos and from pups to puggles, readers not only learn the correct terms for various baby animals but may also be surprised to discover how the parenting is shared between mums and dads and how, for example, baby crocodiles live dangerously when they first hatch. This playful exploration of baby animals will make a popular addition to library and family collections. It is also an ideal gift for overseas visitors as an introduction to Australian wildlife.
