Did you know that you’re God’s finest creation?

When God created my toes, did he make them wiggle? Did he know I’d giggle? Did he have to hold his nose, when God created my toes?

This charming picture book allows children to imagine what it was like when God created them. From the top of their heads to the tips of their toes, they will explore and understand God’s delight in their lives.

Through rhyming lines and vivid illustrations children will gain confidence and self-esteem when they begin to fully realize how perfectly, intricately and uniquely God made them.


This adorable book captures the essence of children with its child like thought and expressive art work. I chuckled a few times thinking how perfect various stanzas were in regards to the mind of a child versus the mind of an adult. This was proved with the delight my children displayed as we read this book together. It had them pointing out the different parts of them that God made, asking questions and laughing.

The book brings forth the thought that we are all unique yet the same. God made us to have fingers and toes and other wonderfully useful parts, but also made us unique individuals and loves us all the same. We are each special and treasured. My children and I enjoyed reading this cute and charming title! I would recommend it for children ages 2-5 years.
