Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes

ten little fingers and ten little toes

Mem Fox’s Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes was first published in 2008 and has been a favourite with parents and babies the world over ever since. A copy of the book, signed by Mem, was even given to Prince George when he was born in July 2013 as one of Australia’s official gifts to the newest member of the English royal family.

Written in gentle, rhyming verse, this lovely book is a poem of love to babies the world over, brought to life by the divine illustrations of Helen Oxenbury.

A gorgeous board book edition of Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes is one of the very special books we include in our Baby’s First Library Gift Basket.

“There was one little baby who was born far away,
and another who was born on the very next day.
And both of these babies – as everyone knows –
had ten little fingers and ten little toes.”
