Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes

By Mem Fox

Illustrated by Helen Oxenbury

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.

Customer reviews


'“A glorious celebration of diversity and those precious early parenting moments filled with lots of tickles and play. A perfect first baby gift.”' Baby London

'“A wonderful celebration of all kinds of babies! Helen Oxenbury’s gorgeous babies, sometimes smiling, sometimes playing, sometimes snuggled up asleep and sometimes with a streaming cold, all have one thing in common. They each have ten little fingers and ten little toes. Counting them out in Mem Fox’s bouncy rhyming text while a baby enjoys the pictures will be a joy for adult and child alike.”' Julia Eccleshare, LoveReading 4 Kids – January Book of the Month
