Review Quotes



This gently lilting read-aloud is just right for bedtime, or anytime your child could use a little extra comfort. You'll go ga-ga yourself over the adorable watercolors of babies around the world. --Parenting, September 2008

Put two titans of kids' books together for the first time, and what do you get (besides the urge to shout, What took you so long?)? The answer: an instant classic . . . there's real magic at work here.--Publishers Weekly, starred review

Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes gently presents--but never preaches--a satisfying lesson about humanity and international harmony.--BookPage

A standout for its beautiful simplicity, this picture-book collaboration between Fox and Oxenbury aims a message of diversity and tolerance at very young children. . . . Clusters of adorable mulitcultural babies from around the world toddle across the pages until just one child receives three kisses on the nose from her loving mom, a sweet gesture that parents will want to act out with their own children. A gentle, joyous offering.--Booklist, starred review

Fox's lilting verse just has to be read aloud, and preschoolers will quickly pick up on and join in on the anticipated refrain. Oxenbury's spacious illustrations, featuring her irresistible round-headed tots (and, of course, plenty of chubby baby digits), emphasize the babies' differences and will engage even the youngest listeners in the on-page action.--The Horn Book Magazine, starred review

In 'Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes, ' two beloved picture-book creators -- the storyteller Mem Fox and the artist Helen Oxenbury -- merge their talents in a winsome look at babies around the world.--The New York Times Book Review

A witty and winsome look at babies around the world that has a toe-tapping refrain: the words sound easy and familiar, as though they have been handed down to children forever. And the story ends with a pitch-perfect moment: one little baby who is 'mine, all mine.' --The New York Times Book Review, Notable Children's Books of 2008

'Light as air and sweet as honey' might be a way to describe this delectable confection about babies, here, there and everywhere.--The Globe and Mail

Wichita Eagle, Great Gift Recommendations 2008



"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
