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!

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
