Thank you, Mem and Helen, for coming out of retirement one last time!

Dear little babies with their characteristically busy little fingers and stubby little playdough toes delight the reader with their realism. Thank you, Helen Oxenbury! A singalong rhythm that is "easy to read to" encourages the listener to join in after a couple of repeats. Thank you, Mem Fox! Although these two gifted women had "retired", this book, and the Baby World, is as fresh and light-hearted as these babies are. Focusing on the similarities rather than the differences, their message of peace is tenderly and subtly played. I can't wait to give this as a baby gift!

So sweet a storybook

Nothing is sweeter than tiny baby fingers and chubby baby toes-and the babies they go with, of course. Ten Little Finger and Ten Little Toes is a celebration of babies everywhere. City babies, country babies, sick babies, and well babies, all over the world. And the ten little fingers and ten little toes they all come with. The pictures are adorable, the text is cute, and the book held the attention of my six-year-old (who loves babies) and my three-year-old equally well. Both of them wanted the book read over and over and liked looking at the pictures. If you have a child or grandchild about one- to four-years-old, don't miss Ten Little Finger a It is sure to entertain little ones with both the text and the pictures on the 40 page hardcover book. Armchair Interviews says: A real charmer.

This one should get 6 stars!

As an early childhood professional, I am always looking for new books to share with children, their parents & teachers. When I saw this one reviewed in the National Association for the Education of Young Children's magazine, I immediately ordered several copies. I have already used them for teacher training & as baby shower, welcome-to-world new baby & now-you-are-grandparents gifts. The book includes all of the elements of appropriate books for young children. The story/text is simple and incorporates rhyme, repetition & interesting vocabulary. The illustrations are soft yet colorful & clear, subtly addressing similarities & differences. The book provides opportunities to initiate discussions about numbers by counting the fingers, toes & babies. It also addresses social/emotional aspects of development by illustrating empathy & caring interpreted through the faces & actions of the characters. I have yet to see anyone look at this book & not melt into the long "awe" we often hear when looking at something that truly touches our hearts.

Darling Book

This is one of the sweetest books I have ever read. It is a perfect bedtime story. It would also make a special baby shower gift.

Absolutely perfect!

Mem Fox has done it again!! I can't wait to share this story with my 1 year old daughter so please publish it in a board book edition! I love the message that we're all so alike as babies despite where we live or what color our skin is. It is so relevant to babies as I am always kissing my babies toes and fingers. Helen Oxenbury has produced beautiful illustrations that are pivotal to the language! Can't wait for the board book!!!
