Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little ToesTen Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes

by Mem Fox (Author), Helen Oxenbury (Illustrator)

Reading level: Ages 0-6

Hardcover: 40 pages

Publisher: Harcourt Children’s Books; 1 edition (October 1, 2008)

Synopsis: As everyone knows, nothing is sweeter than tiny baby fingers and chubby baby toes. . . . And here, from two of the most gifted picture-book creators of our time, is a celebration of baby fingers, baby toes, and the joy they—and the babies they belong to—bring to everyone, everywhere, all over the world!
