As other reviewers have noted, this book feels a bit exclusionary. We got round this by amending some of the wording, but some of the original text didn't sit completely well with me. ( )

I think this book is so adorable. I think that you could definitely use it to count with young kids, and get them to start counting other things around them as well. Like how the author shows that babies are born all over the world, but we have the constant of ten little fingers, and ten little toes. I read this to my 6 year old nephew and he had to much fun counting to ten on his fingers and toes whenever the book would say that. I think this would be a great book to have in a classroom of young students. ( )

This story shows all these children being born around the world in different environments, yet they all have in common is that they all have ten little fingers and ten little toes.
