We love the challenge of Jennifer Cossins's The Baby Animal Book (Lothian, $26.99), in which the Tasmanian artist draws animal families and names the babies. OK, we know what a baby kangaroo is called, but a baby platypus? My favourite is the spot-on name for a little Tasmanian devil.
The Baby Animal Book has Cossins' beautiful style of artwork, and basically does what it says on the front. This is a sweet little book, perfect for little people who love animals, particularly baby ones!
