“God Made You Nose to Toes” is a children’s fiction picture book, written by Leslie Parrot. The, oh so cute, illustrations were done by Estelle Corke.
This is a board book, and so can be left to little hands. The bright, colorful pictures will also keep them enthralled.
“God Made You Nose to Toes picks out different parts of the little one – nose, toes, teeth, eyes, even hair, and tells how God made that part, too. Then, of course, the author puts it all together, telling how God loves you so much that He made all of you.
I recommend this to young readers, those who read to them, and tiny tots who just love to look at pretty pictures.
Start them early and give them a love for books!

Sunny images attract the eyes and hands of babies as they reach out to touch the pink flowers and Toucan’s orange nose.
On each page babies and toddlers learn about a different body part and what they can do with it—God gave them hands and eyes and even knees.
Each spread only has four lines (with a rhyme!), but kids will want to linger on the pages to digest the vibrant scene before turning to the next one.
A satisfying book that teaches little ones that their abilities to laugh and smell and climb all come from God.
The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through BookSneeze®. I was not required to write a positive review.

This is something we can teach our children by doing the little things such as telling them who created them as well as the world around them. This is a great board book that does just that. It is so sweet and I absolutely love the illustrations, too!
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. All opinions are my own. (Posted on 12/29/2016)

My sweet Josiah loves to read and I do believe one reason for this is because his parents and grandparents made a point to read to him since he was just a very little baby! We read to him and read to his brothers as well - there is great value in doing this. My sweet Caleb (five years old) is beginning to read . . . he is quite enjoying being able to put letters together to make words and sweet Shane (three years old) loves it when he learns a new letter!
Since I love books and reading, I'm always happy when I'm invited to read and review a new book. Recently Zonderkidz invited me to review God Made You Nose to Toes . . . I love the title and thought it sounded like a fun book for little ones, so today I'm very happy to share it with you.

I found God Made You Nose to Toes to be a fun book - little ones will enjoy finding their own eyes, noses, toes, fingers and more as they hear how God created each of these to show His love for them. I especially love the parts which say; "When God made the ostrich, the monkey, and giraffe, He knew that you'd need a good mouth just to laugh . . . So many ways God shows that He cares. Did you know that He counts each one of your hairs?" A fun book for sure! (Posted on 12/26/2016)

Help little ones understand that God created each part of their bodies so they can enjoy life and everything in it.

What a great little book to teach your child (age five and under) about why God made each part of your body and what it can enjoy in life. It also teaches about the things that God made in the universe that we can enjoy with the functions of our body that he gave us, such as smelling with our nose all the things God created that grows and seeing with our eyes the sky, planets and stars, not to mention fingers that can dig in the earth and sand. All in all, God not only created us from Nose to Toes, but also the things in life we enjoy!
The book is bright yellow and beautifully illustrated on the cover and inside. The pictures will have your child spending time just turning the pages looking at the beautiful illustrations. It is a board book which makes it easy for your youngster to turn the pages and also to wipe off sticky handprints. This would make an excellent gift!
Disclosure: I was given a copy of this Book by the publisher, Zonderkidz, Z Blog Squad, blogger review program. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
