A sweet and contemporary nursery rhyme about what a diverse group of babies have in common from acclaimed picture-book creators Mem Fox and Helen Oxenbury.

As everyone knows,nothing is sweeter than tiny baby fingers and chubby baby toes. . . .

This gorgeously simple picture book, now in a big book edition, is a perfect read-aloud for very young children with its rhythmic, rhyming text. Children (and the adults reading to them) will delight in the illustrations of roly-poly little ones from a variety of backgrounds—wrinkles, dimples, pudges, and all!

A gentle, joyous offering."--Booklist,starred review
