Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes
Illustrated by Helen Oxenbury
Babies may be born in different countries, look a little different and have different needs, but one thing that most have in common are ten fingers and ten toes. This is the uniting theme of this perfect first book for sharing. From the swaddled newborn, to children sitting alone, then crawling together, and then standing, the illustrations show babies born all over the world in the country and cities, all with irresistibly chubby fingers and toes.
This book provides a great opportunity for readers to interact with baby whilst reading aloud - and when the tale turns to the baby that is ‘mine, all mine’ and supplies a final, surprise extension to the ‘ten little toes’ rhyme, the opportunity for bonding is made perfect. Accompanied by Helen Oxenbury's lovely illustrations, this is a charming first book that is perfect for new arrivals.

Lovely book about how everyone is quite unique... and all the same! Beautiful... My daughter never had contact with English before, we borrowed this book from the Library and now she keeps asking me to read for her :)
Did page two of the illustration where the mother with the apron is holding her new born orginally have a fly on her apron?
