As everyone knows, nothing is sweeter than tiny baby fingers and chubby baby toes . . .
From two of the most gifted picture book creators of our time, here is a celebration of babies and the joy they bring to everyone, everywhere, all over the world!
'This is a perfect read-aloud picture book . . . full of warmth and appeal. It was a joy to read and a pleasure to hold.'
Margaret Hamilton, Bookseller and Publisher
