Synopses & Reviews

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 they — and the babies they belong to — bring to everyone, everywhere, all over the world!

This is a gorgeously simple picture book for very young children, and once you finish the rhythmic, rhyming text, all you'll want to do is go back to the beginning...and read it again!

The luminous watercolor illustrations of these roly-poly little ones from a variety of backgrounds are adorable, quirky, and true to life, right down to the wrinkles, dimples, and pudges in their completely squishable arms, legs, and tummies.

Review:

English author/illustrator Helen Oxenbury, winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal, teamed up with celebrated Australian illustrator/author Mem Fox for this around-the-world look at babyhood, to be published next month. The happy result is a jig-along rhyme sure to delight parents and tots alike. "There was one little baby who was born far away. And another who was born on the very next day. And both of...

Review:

"'Light as air and sweet as honey' might be a way to describe this delectable confection about babies, here, there and everywhere." The Globe and Mail

Review:

"This gently lilting read-aloud is just right for bedtime, or anytime your child could use a little extra comfort. You'll go ga-ga yourself over the adorable watercolors of babies around the world." Parenting

Review:

"Put two titans of kids' books together for the first time, and what do you get (besides the urge to shout, "What took you so long?")? The answer: an instant classic . . . there's real magic at work here." Publishers Weekly starred review

Review:

"Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes gently presents — but never preaches — a satisfying lesson about humanity and international harmony." BookPage

Review:

"A standout for its beautiful simplicity, this picture-book collaboration between Fox and Oxenbury aims a message of diversity and tolerance at very young children. . . . Clusters of adorable mulitcultural babies from around the world toddle across the pages until just one child receives three kisses on the nose from her loving mom, a sweet gesture that parents will want to act out with their own children. A gentle, joyous offering." Booklist starred review

Review:

"Fox's lilting verse just has to be read aloud, and preschoolers will quickly pick up on and join in on the anticipated refrain. Oxenbury's spacious illustrations, featuring her irresistible round-headed tots (and, of course, plenty of chubby baby digits), emphasize the babies' differences and will engage even the youngest listeners in the on-page action."The Horn Book Magazine starred review

Review:

"In Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes, two beloved picture-book creators the storyteller Mem Fox and the artist Helen Oxenbury merge their talents in a winsome look at babies around the world." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"A witty and winsome look at babies around the world that has a toe-tapping refrain: the words sound easy and familiar, as though they have been handed down to children forever. And the story ends with a pitch-perfect moment: one little baby who is 'mine, all mine.' " The New York Times Book Review, Notable Children's Books of 2008

Synopsis:

In their first-ever collaboration, two of today's most gifted picture book creators deliver a gorgeously simple book that celebrates baby fingers, baby toes, and the joy they — and the babies they belong to — bring to everyone.

Synopsis:

A modern nursery rhyme about the things that babies everywhere have in common, now available in a Spanish/English bilingual board book edition.

Synopsis:

"There was one little baby / who was born far away. / And another who was born / on the very next day. / And both of these babies, / as everyone knows, / had ten little fingers / and ten little toes." No matter which part of the world a baby comes from—born on the ice or in a tent—that baby has “ten little fingers / and ten little toes,” the pleasing refrain of this wonderful, rhyming tribute to the chubby, sweet universality of babies of all colors. Helen Oxenburys soft, rounded babies are captured perfectly in soft, rounded watercolors.

Synopsis:

A global celebration of adorable baby fingers and baby toes—now available in a lap board book edition. Born in the hills or in a town, in a tent or on the ice, these babies from across the globe all have one thing in common—adorable fingers and toes. But one little baby has something only its mother can give.

Description:

A modern nursery rhyme about the things babies everywhere have in common.

Even before our baby arrives, we've already picked this one out as the first one we want to read to her. The rhyming and rhythm lend themselves well to engaging a small child, and the sentiment will keep mom and dad enjoying this book over and over.
