Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes by Mem Fox

Fox, Mem Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes, 40 pgs. Harcourt, 2008. Language - G, Sexual Content - G ; Violence - G ; This sweet poem celebrates babies around the world. Helen Oxenbury’s illustrations are timeless and enjoyable for both adults and children. This book is one that will have your youngster cuddly in your arms. I enjoyed the thought behind the poem, but as a mother of a specially-abled baby this poem did not celebrate all babies.

I love this book! It is going into my professional collection of books for toddler storytimes. I love the multicultural aspects as well as the reaccuring phrase "Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes"
