From the Publisher
"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 Oxenbury's soft, rounded babies are
captured perfectly in soft, rounded watercolors.
