Win the Picture Book of the Month, Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes

Nothing is sweeter, as everyone knows, than tiny baby fingers and chubby baby toes!

Illustrated by We’re Going on Bear Hunt’s Helen Oxenbury, this is a beautiful 10th anniversary board book edition of a picture book classic, and the perfect gift for a new arrival! 

 “Delightfully exuberant, this is a simple, glorious celebration of the differences and similarities between babies the world over” Observer 

All over the world, babies are different. Yet in some ways they are very much the same: each one has ten little fingers and ten little toes – to play with, to tickle, to wave. And each child is very, very special to its parents… Mem Fox’s gentle rhyming text makes this a brilliant read-aloud, and Helen Oxenbury's gorgeous art – featuring babies from a diverse array of backgrounds – will allow all children to see themselves in the story. With gorgeous golden foil on the cover and spine, this edition is one to share and treasure.


We have five copies of Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes with posters to give away! To enter, just email your name and address to competitions@walker.co.uk with ‘Ten Little Fingers' in the subject line for your chance to win. 

Competition closes on 17th February 2018. Terms and conditions apply.
