Description

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!show more

Customer reviews

My toddler loves turning pages and this book has plenty of them. The illustrations are beautiful and there aren't too many words per page so I can keep the story going even when he is turning pages at a great pace! It is not a chore to read this book over and over.show more

I love Mem Fox's books. My son loves The green sheep, but this is my favorite. It is so beautiful. The story and the meaning is absolutely lovely. Such a beautiful thing to read to a baby before bed, it reads like a poem and says how much you love your baby.show more
