The perfect gift for a new arrival, this is the best-loved baby book from Mex Fox and Helen Oxenbury, illustrator of We're Going on a Bear Hunt. All over the world, babies are different. Yet in some ways they are very much the same: each one has ten little fingers and ten little toes - to play with, to tickle, to wave. And each child is very, very special to its parents...

With a gently rhyming text and delightfully exuberant illustration, this glorious celebration of babies the world over is a book to treasure. Reverse the book's jacket to find a gorgeous first nursery poster, too!

Industry Reviews

Delightfully exuberant and endearingly sentimental, this is a simple, glorious celebration of the differences and similarities between babies the world over. -- Observer

An instant classic ... there's real magic at work here. -- Publisher's Weekly

A great book about difference

4

Loved this book! Great to teach the children about 'difference', with the book's moral sending a great message to little ones. The book keeps young children aged 3-5 engaged the whole way through, as the pages are not cluttered with too much writing. Very engaging through its repetitiveness, allowing the children to 'read along' with you.
