  1. Say Says:

    Review by Dale L. Burney for Rating: Ten Little Fingers by Annie Kubler is one of a series of books that is a pefcert fit for very little ones. The rhythm and rhyme draws their attention and the illustrations are big blobs of color, sharply delineated from each other. You can start with an infant who is old enough to focus and they will be enthralled by the colors. The size of the book is good for holding open with one hand as you hold the baby in the other arm.
