About the Book
The beloved duo of Fox and Oxenbury present a modern nursery rhyme about the things babies everywhere have in common. Full color.
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. "

“Blonde top-knots, springy black curls, haystack red straw and sleek black hair surround smiling, frowning, sneezing or contemplative baby faces. Anyone who has ever tweaked a little piggy will quickly start chanting the infectious refrain from this 'digital' romp.” --Washington Post Book World, September 7, 2008
