Nothing is sweeter, as everyone knows, than tiny baby fingers and chubby baby toes!
"Delightfully exuberant, this is a simple, glorious celebration of the differences and similarities between babies the world over" Observer
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.
