Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes

Written by Mem Fox

Illustrated by Helen Oxenbury

Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes Synopsis

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!
