Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.

God Made You Nose to Toes by Leslie Parrott is a sweet little board book that teaches children their true value.
From the Back Cover: “Help little ones understand that God created each part of their bodies so they can enjoy life and everything in it. In this delightful book by well-known author and family therapist Leslie Parrott, little ones can follow along with Toucan – with his great big nose – as he helps them learn God loves each one of them completely.”
The book is illustrated by Estelle Corke. The pictures are colorful and appealing. Your child will make friends with Toucan as he or she progresses through the pages.
Your child will be delighted with a few other characters as well . . . like a monkey, a giraffe, and this clean-toothed crocodile.
This short little book teaches children that God loves them and every part of them. Although the verse is not used in the book, children will learn that they are “fearfully and wonderfully made.”
It is important to teach children that they are valuable little creatures – valuable just as they are from their noses to their toes. The earlier we teach this, the more self-confident they will be. God Made You Nose to Toes is a great tool to help parents teach their children this important lesson.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. – Psalm 139:14 (NIV)
I definitely recommend God Made You Nose to Toes by Leslie Parrott.
