Oh Baby! The A to Z

Oh Baby!: The A to Z (black dog books, an imprint of Walker Books Australia)
PB RRP $16.95
ISBN 9781742032306
Reviewed by Vicki Stanton

Oh Baby! is an A to Z with a difference. The photographs are extraordinary (and extraordinarily cute) and the animals featured include some I have never seen in a alphabet collection before such as upland geese and x-ray fish. Animals from across the globe appear including many from Australia (and no, the 'k' is not a kangaroo or koala but a kookaburra).

Some of the animals also have descriptions or actions added in the text and these were the best pages of all. It was hard to decide on my favourite. Was it the hedgehog which 'has a very spiky hairstyle!' or the chicken which 'is curious about flying'?

Oh Baby! is a delightful book to share with young children and for those eager to learn the alphabet. Children will be sure to return to the book time and time again.
