Synopsis

Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes by Mem Fox

Nothing is sweeter, as everyone knows, than tiny baby fingers and chubby baby toes! The perfect gift for a new arrival, this is the best-loved baby book from Mex Fox and Helen Oxenbury, illustrator of We're Going on a Bear Hunt. 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...With a gently rhyming text and delightfully exuberant illustration, this glorious celebration of babies the world over is a book to treasure. Reverse the book's jacket to find a gorgeous first nursery poster, too!

Reviews

Delightfully exuberant and endearingly sentimental, this is a simple, glorious celebration of the differences and similarities between babies the world over. Observer An instant classic ... there's real magic at work here. Publisher's Weekly
