love this book!! As a homeschooling mom, I am always looking for new books for my daughters. I recently had the chance to review When God Created My Toes by Dandi Daley Mackall. I am going to put the book up for a Christmas gift, but can’t wait to read it to my daughters.

The book goes through different parts of the body, with a child questioning what God was thinking as he created them. I know that my five year old daughter will relate to each question and probably add her own questions. The story is told with a lot of rhymes, making it fun to read. The illustrations are mostly fun, and creative. There are a few illustrations that show negative actions by the child. I will use these as opportunities for more discussion. While I would love for a book about God’s creation to be all positive and happy things, the reality is that kids are not perfect. I hope the illustrations give me a chance to talk about how God also knew we would make mistakes, but that didn’t keep him from creating us.

I hope my daughters love this story as much as I do. I will be looking for other books by this author.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
