"When God Created My Toes" Book Review



It is time to play a Wild Card! Every now and then, a book that I have chosen to read is going to pop up as a FIRST Wild Card Tour. Get dealt into the game! (Just click the button!) Wild Card Tours feature an author and his/her book's FIRST chapter!

You never know when I might play a wild card on you!


MY REVIEW:
I was absolutely enchanted by this book, as were my children, and I thought it was wonderful how it went into different body parts and yet the rhyming flowed so well, the illustrations are fantastic and the kids loved it. It was so fun to read that I will be doing it repeatedly :-) A great gift idea and addition to your family library!

I love the illustrations in this book (I'm a former first grade teacher so I love picture books.) Dandi has done it again with a delightful book and great job, David.

(It was neat to have the window of the illustration--cool.)

Thanks, Janna!
