Illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, known for We're Going on a Bear Hunt, this beautiful book tells the story of different babies around the world with one thing in common - ten little fingers and ten little toes. The gentle rhyming means it's ideal for reading aloud. Warning: it will be much-requested. -- Amy Nickell * i (The Independent) *
