This is a story that talks about children all being the same all over the world. It explains that one baby is born here or there one baby is born like this or like that but all babies are born with ten fingers and ten toes.

Personal Experience:
I have a connection to this book because my sons friend is a different race than he is. The neighbor boy has practically been raised in my house. He is there all the time. I had to explain to my son that there is not a difference between us because of our skin.

Classroom Extension:
1. I would get several different magazines and let the students cut out several different ethnic groups of people and glue them on constrution paper showing we are all the same except our skin.
2. I would talk to the students about how dogs look different but are all dogs and the same for snakes, cats, birds and so forth ( )

Babies are born in different places, but they have things in common like ten little toes and ten little fingers. Even though, they are all different ethnicities they are still alike in many ways. A great reader where the children will be repeating stanza's.

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.
