Blogging for Books- When God Created My Toes by Dandi Daley Mackall

Posted by Heather at Monday, November 07, 2011

When God Created My Toes by Dandi Daley Mackall is a children’s book about the body and the creation of its various parts. While the book is meant to be light-hearted with a simple, child-like approach to explaining the complex concept of the creation of man, I believe that this book asks too many questions- “Did he know?” “Did he put?”- without any concrete answers.

The sketchy side illustrations by David Hohn are the best part of the book. While the main illustrations are playful and fun, it’s the sketched cartoons that won my heart with its sincerity and sweetness.

In short, I believe that this book fails to answer the central question framed in its title, “When God Created My Toes.”
