When God Created My Toes, a Review
When God Created My Toes, by Dandi Daley Mackall, is a cute, rhyming children's picture book. It's beautifully illustrated with bright, vivid drawings by David Hohn. The plot is simple, written in short, catchy refrains, dealing with childhood musings by a young girl wondering if God had to hold his nose when He created her toes.
The book progresses up through her body, asking similar questions for when God made her knees, ears, etc. I thought the illustrations were stunning, and combining these with the verse, I think any young child would be able to pay attention to the read.
When God Created My Toes is a short, fun picture book, perfect for children learning to read. It poses funny scenarios and wonderings, and also provides a way for parents to encourage their children to come up with their own rhyme.
*FTC Thingy: When God Created My Toes was provided to me freely from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for my honest review, which I've also posted elsewhere on the mighty Internets.
