Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes

Celebrating 10 years of Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes

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…

For over a decade Mem Fox’s Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes, brought to life by Helen Oxenbury’s diverse cast of delicious babies, has been shared by parents and their little ones the world over.

The gentle rhyming text not only makes this a brilliant read-aloud, but the gorgeous art – featuring babies from an array of backgrounds – allows all children to see themselves in the story. Now with a special tenth anniversary board book edition coming in January 2018, this modern picture book classic can be enjoyed by a whole new generation of readers.
