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

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

What I really love about this book is the diversity of babies represented, lots of different nationalities.
