Publisher Comments:

As everyone knows, nothing is sweeter than tiny baby fingers and chubby baby toes. . . . And here, from two of the most gifted picture-book creators of our time, is a celebration of baby fingers, baby toes, and the joy theyand#151;and the babies they belong toand#151;bring to everyone, everywhere, all over the world!

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;This is aand#160;gorgeously simple picture book for very young children, and once you finish the rhythmic, rhyming text, all youand#8217;ll want to do is go back to the beginning . . . and read it again!and#160;Theand#160;luminous watercolor illustrations of these roly-poly little ones from a variety of backgrounds are adorable, quirky, and trueand#160;to life, right down to the wrinkles, dimples, and pudges in their completely squishable arms, legs, and tummies.

Review:

"Move over, 'sunshine.' Ogburn and Raschka give families a whole new vocabulary with which to express their love, exploring terms of endearment used around the globe. Impish, doe-eyed figures rendered in broad, calligraphic brushstrokes wear with pride terms like 'ducky,' used in England, and 'kullanmuru,' which means 'nugget of gold' in Finland. Raschka forgoes painting his characters with black, brown, or white skin, instead using gleeful pinks, blues, teals, and greens. The phrases appear both in English and in their original languages (Cyrillic, Mandarin, and Arabic characters are included), with phonetic pronunciations provided for such terms as 'xiao pie dou' ('little mischievous pea' in China) and 'yeinay filiklik' ('my bubble of joy' in Ethiopia). The message about familial love being a universal human trait is clearly and joyfully articulated; it's hard to imagine a sweeter concept. Ages 4 — 8."
