God Made You Nose to Toes
By Leslie Parrott
Illustrated by Estelle Corke
Published by: Zonderkidz
18 Pages Board Book
ABOUT BOOK: Help little ones understand that God created each part of their bodies so they can enjoy life and everything in it. In this delightful padded cover board book by well-known author and family therapist Leslie Parrott, children can follow along with Toucan––with a great big nose––as he helps them learn God loves each one of them completely. For 4-8 year olds. Preschoolers and kindergarteners.
REVIEW: Great colorful illustrations help bring the message of the story to life. This young boy learns about how God made all of us from our heads to our toes. The illustrations have this young boy running into different animals and talking about how they have the same things as he does but they may look different. For example, on page one the author says, “God gave old Tucan a fairly big nose. But your little nose can smell all that grows.”
This book also talks about not only the body parts eyes, nose, hands etc. but it also talks about their function and what it allows us to do. The pictures will make you smile could make little ones laugh out loud. I can’t wait to read this to my grandson to experience his reaction. I could see this one becoming a book they will enjoy and learn a thing or two. Note to reader: This book was originally published in March 2002. This new version has a completely different look I really like.
