Into the world came ten tiny toes,
a hundred times sweeter than one could suppose....

There's nothing sweeter in the world than a baby's ten tiny toes. From tiny feet nuzzled and tickled in the crib to bath time, playtime, and those very first big steps, here is a wonderful way to commemorate the unforgettable moments in a young child's life.

Marc Brown's adorable collage illustrations bring Todd Tarpley's rhythmic text to life in this tender read-aloud. It is a joyous celebration of the unbreakable bond of love that guides a child through each exciting milestone and beyond.
