Table of Contents
ReviewsThis adorable Australian take on the old classic "five little ducks" includes tabs that open to reveal facts about the bush babies. The colourful illustrations make it easy to count along as the bush babies keep disappearing until Mrs Roo has to take action!
This is another beautifully-produced book from the National Library of Australia. Each double page spread features a large lift-the-flap which reveals our 'runaway' critter, with some 'did you know' facts. Adorable, pastel illustrations by Naomi Zouwer and images of bush babies from the NLA's digital collection round out a gorgeous counting book for little ones. Perfect for Aussie kids, as well as friends overseas.
10 Bush Babies is a very cute board book for toddlers. The ten bush babies include a baby wombat, koala, echidna, possum, bilby, platypus, quoll, emu, kangaroo and dingo.
With every page one of the baby animals fails to come back to Mrs Roo (their teacher) and children are asked to name which animal is 'missing' from the illustration. It is a fantastic way to engage very young children in the story.
Of course there's a happy ending when all the baby animals are found. There is also a summary page at the very back which explains where the animals were e.g. 'Baby platypus went for a swim'.
Made of high quality thick cardboard this book will survive the many times it will be read and re-read and will introduce your child to the gorgeous Australian bush animals.
