January 2018 Book of the Month | A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month January 2018

A wonderful celebration of all kinds of babies! Helen Oxenbury’s gorgeous babies, sometimes smiling, sometimes playing, sometimes snuggled up asleep and sometimes with a streaming cold, all have one thing in common. They each have ten little fingers and ten little toes. Counting them out in Mem Fox’s bouncy rhyming text while a baby enjoys the pictures will be a joy for adult and child alike. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes by Mem Fox

Illustrated by We’re Going on Bear Hunt’s Helen Oxenbury, this is a beautiful 10th anniversary board book edition of a picture book classic, and the perfect gift for a new arrival! All over the world, babies are different. Yet in some ways they are very much the same: each one has ten little fingers and ten little toes – to play with, to tickle, to wave. And each child is very, very special to its parents…

Mem Fox’s gentle rhyming text makes this a brilliant read-aloud, and Helen Oxenbury's gorgeous art – featuring babies from a diverse array of backgrounds – will allow all children to see themselves in the story. With gorgeous golden foil on the cover and spine, this edition is one to share and treasure.
