Book Review:

A wonderful picture book, by Dandi Daley Mackall, for every preschool to kindergarten girl with child-like drawings, along with gorgeous professional illustrations by David Hohn.

The delightful story has a strong beginning with "When God created my toes" and scripture in the Psalms. The storyline moves along quite nicely in rhyme form, addressing other parts of the body such as knees, eyes, hands, etc.

There is a sense of warmth throughout the book as the little girl tenderly asks some very important questions that lovingly need answering. I especially like how the author and illustrator have captured the love and joy that surrounds the mother, father, and pretty little girl, with the security of a family. 

***** stars! I love the book. It's excellent and perfect for my granddaughter. A treasure, for sure.
If you are looking for a book to reinforce positive beginnings of self-esteem, nurturing and affirmation, then this is the one.  

Thanks to Blogging for Books for providing a complimentary copy of the book for my review.
