I 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.
