Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes
Written by Mem Fox
Illustrated by Helen Oxenbury
The book tells of eight beautiful babies from around the world who immediately learn to play together. Reader’s see a child “born on the ice” stand beside a penguin, and on the next page, readers meet a child born in a tent. Soon the two are fast friends, playing a joyful tug –of-war with one boy’s scarf. The illustrator brilliantly captures the children’s expressions with roly-poly faces filled with glee. The story delivers the subtle message of international harmony great for babies, toddlers and older children too.
"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."
