4 out of 5 (2 ratings)


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!

Book about kids from different cultures, and how they all have 10 fingers and 10 toes. Great about how we're different, but alike. Also good early grade 1 math lesson about counting.

A story of babies being born all around the world but all having one thing in common. Every baby no matter where it is born has ten little fingers and ten little toes. This is great to read to show no matter what culture we may be we will always have things in common with one another.
