Children are fascinated by animals, and particularly their babies but what are they all called? This is just what a curious puppy wants to know, so he travels all over the world, asking a colorful array of other baby animals he meets, "What is the name of the baby kangaroo?" Helping youngsters to learn the names of baby animals the world over, Who Are You, Baby Kangaroo? introduces children to penguin chicks, wolf cubs, piglets, zebra foals and many others. And for children who are still curious and want to know more, there are notes at the back of the book on each of the animals in the story.

PreSchool-K–When a baby kangaroo refuses to reveal what he is called, a puppy goes on a journey to find out, asking all of the animals that he meets along the way if they know the answer. After traveling around the world, the pup returns to his starting point, and Mommy Kangaroo reveals that her little one is called "a joey!" The rhyming, repetitive text makes this book perfect for reading aloud, and provides an opportunity for children to learn the names of various baby creatures (wolf cubs, piglets, moose calves, zebra foals, etc.). Several pages at the end offer a few facts about each animal. Made of felt, antique fabrics, buttons, beads, and sequins, Beaton's illustrations are filled with bright colors and interesting details. The artwork fits the story well, and there is plenty of action on each page. A great choice for one-on-one or group sharing.–Kelley Rae Unger, Peabody Institute, MA
