No matter how different babies look from each other, or where they are born, every baby is born with ten fingers and ten toes.

This is a kind and sweet book about how all babies have the same metacarpals and metatarsals and like to cuddle and smile at and help each other, but more than that, it is the first of what must surely be a hundred kids' books on this LibraryThing account that just mixes kids from different ethnic backgrounds in a casual way rather than being super weird and self-conscious about the tokenism or making like all black kids live in Africa and are giraffes or just whitewashing. It is a surprisingly rare thing! Anyway, don't get this for the child in your life who's missing any fingers or toes. ( )

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I worked at a daycare for the past few years and this was a popular book that the babies and toddlers really enjoyed! The overall message of the story is that regardless of a baby’s culture, babies all have fingers, toes, and people that care about them in their lives. I liked the story because it was a board book that was a really good first book for babies and toddlers. It was durable and had cute illustrations that were enjoyable to look at. I also enjoyed it because it was interactive because you could count the baby’s fingers, toes, and point out the different body parts. Therefore, it’s a great first learning tool for babies too!
I would recommend this book for infants and toddlers because it’s very simple and teaches basic counting and body parts. It’s also a quick read, which is great for infants and toddlers’ short attention spans. ( )

Drawings of children from different areas of the world, every time a baby is born in a different place, but all have ten little fingers and ten little toes. End of story was baby born to 'me', the same ten fingers ten toes but then 3 kisses on the tip of his nose.

There are babies born everywhere, some in cold, some in warm, and some who have the sniffles. Even though every baby is born in different area’s and circumstances they all have some parts that are still the same.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 015206057X, Hardcover)

As everyone knows, nothing is sweeter than tiny baby fingers and chubby baby toes. . . . And here, from two of the most gifted picture-book creators of our time, is a celebration of baby fingers, baby toes, and the joy they—and the babies they belong to—bring to everyone, everywhere, all over the world!

          This is a gorgeously simple picture book for very young children, and once you finish the rhythmic, rhyming text, all you’ll want to do is go back to the beginning . . . and read it again! The luminous watercolor illustrations of these roly-poly little ones from a variety of backgrounds are adorable, quirky, and true to life, right down to the wrinkles, dimples, and pudges in their completely squishable arms, legs, and tummies.

Rhyming text compares babies born in different places and in different circumstances, but they all share the commonality of ten little fingers and ten little toes.
