What Do You Call A Baby


FISH - Foundation for Indigenous Sustainable Health

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 — hatchling, eaglet and puggle.

Kamsani 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.

About the Illustrator

Kamsani Bin Salleh is descended from the Nimunburr, Bunuba and Yawuru peoples of the Kimberley and the Ballardong Noongar people of the Perth region in WA. He is an emerging artist/multi-media practitioner who is garnering attention for his ability to reflect the natural world with intricate designs and striking black line work.

In 2016, Kamsani was one of ten artists asked to capture their view of Perth and WA as part of PerthNow’s 10th birthday celebrations. That same year he was awarded an Indigenous Creators Scholarship through Magabala Books to develop his skills as an illustrator. He holds a Bachelor of Communication and Media Studies from the University of WA and is currently the Creative Art Director for UniHall at UWA.

At the Beach I See
 is his debut children’s picture book.
