Descripción del producto
"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-- (09/07/2008)

The rhyming and repetition are also great for babies and toddlers. The pictures are lovely and the large-scale of the book is fun to lay in our laps while we read. It's also been a great book to gift since it's not as well known so less likely to get purchased by multiple people.
My 15 month old has loved this book since she was 6 months old and I don't see us putting it down for a long while. Highly recommended!
-- my 14 month old loves the pictures and melody of the words,
-- my 3 year old asks questions about each of the babies,
-- my 4 year old loves to recite it with me, and
-- my 8 year old loves to read it to the baby, again and again.
One of those that you don't tire of reading again...and again.
The text is repeated sets of rhyming couplets: "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!" The first two lines change to describe other babies, but the two concluding lines remain consistent. It reads smoothly and bouncily, with plenty of page given for each line of text. The last bit changes, when the narrator introduces her own baby. Not only does that baby have ten little fingers and ten little toes, but also "three little kisses on the tip of its nose!" What a lovely little finish! This is great fun to read with youngsters and babies, especially if you can give them three kisses just like the baby in the book.
But honestly, the rhyme on its own probably wouldn't have caught me if not for Helen Oxenbury's adorable illustrations. This veteran of children's illustration knows just the right touch to pair up with the text. There are very few illustrations with full backgrounds--most of the pictures focus on the baby characters. When there are occasional simple backgrounds or objects, these are mere props to the babies themselves. Oxenbury's multicultural cast of babies adds an extra dimension to the rhyme without being preachy or clumsy with the presentation. She also has our cast of babies growing up slowly through each couplet. While the first has tiny babies that cannot crawl yet, by the end of the book, they are toddlers, walking and climbing and laughing delightedly as the narrator mother holds her own baby to give it three kisses. The simplicity of the images make it a good pick for a younger child, and the rhyming repetitive text are excellent for helping children predict what comes next.
I'll be buying this book for all my new moms this year!
Happy Reading! ^_^ Shanshad
As for the product, the soft padded cover is awesome for younger babies, and the board pages stand up to a ton of use/abuse at the hands of a toddler.
Now, if only every prejudiced adult had a copy of this book (and understood it), the world might be a better place! A must-have in my library!
