You'll go ga-ga yourself over the adorable watercolors of babies around the world. --Parenting, September 2008<p> 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<p> Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes gently presents--but never preaches--a satisfying lesson about humanity and international harmony. -- BookPage <p> 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. . . .
