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
Julia Eccleshare's Picks of the Month for January 2018
Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes by by Mem Fox
Words and Your Heart by Kate Jane Neal
Emmeline and the Plucky Pup by Megan Rix
Whatever Next! by Jill Murphy
The Girl Who Saw Lions by Berlie Doherty
The Poesy Ring by Bob Graham
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.
“Delightfully exuberant, this is a simple, glorious celebration of the differences and similarities between babies the world over” Observer
