There’s plenty of opportunity for interaction and cuddles as Dempsey encourages readers to “Count each finger one by one” and then kiss them when they’re done. Multiethnic, round-headed, chubby-handed babies want more, more, more. Lends itself nicely to follow a certain action rhyme about baking!

Synopsis

Count each little finger one by one in this sweet picture book.

Ten little fingers, one hand . . . two.
Two small hands belong to you!

Join a group of toddlers as they enjoy delicious treats, and count one by one as one little finger points to cake, two little fingers tap a plate, three little fingers pinch a bite, and four little fingers squish it tight! But one piece just isn't enough—they want more! When they’re done, a parent cleans and kisses “two small hands on one small you!”
