"Both of these babies,

as everyone knows, had ten little fingers, and ten little toes."

This repeated refrain in Mem Fox and Helen Oxbenbury's newest collaboration is pitch perfect for sharing with babies and toddlers.  The larger format of the book, called a "lap board book", is heavier than a traditional board book, making it better suited for sharing with children not yet strong enough to hurl it like a weapon. 
Remember that it's okay to let your little ones rough house with our board books, it's why we have them in such a sturdy format!  They are learning the basics of how to handle books before we give them options with flimsier pages.  We refresh our collection regularly, so bring in those ten little fingers and ten little toes to check them out!
