‘Gotta get the Baby’ is the nerve wracking recount of Trudy Inkamala’s community held story, as told to the author in 2009. Three women go looking for bush tucker, one taking her baby along. A ‘boogie’ woman sneaks up to the baby when the women are focussed on digging for honey ants and takes it away. A few anxious pages later the baby is reunited with its mother.
One song at the end of the book, ‘Find the Baby’, serves as a rhyming musical recount of the story and the other, ‘What am I?’ teaches Standard English ‘bush’ vocabulary through the reply ‘I’m…’ The number of different words being used in this book is 204. There are 6 activities at the back of the book to reinforce the learning.
