God Made You Nose to Toes is a children’s book written by Leslie Parrott and illustrated by Estelle Corke, exploring how “God loves you completely from your head to big toe.” The book follows the adventures of a young boy and his toucan friend, as the boy smells flowers with his nose, builds a sandcastle with his hands, climbs trees using his knees, gazes at the stars with his eyes, listens to the sound of water splashing with his ears, laughs with his mouth, brushes his teeth, and is reminded of how much God cares for him. The story definitely covers the senses of sight, hearing, touch, and smell; and technically, it also covers the sense of taste when the boy brushes his teeth.

The title character is reminiscent of a character from a Dick and Jane book, drawn in a cute and quaint style. The only illustration that Oak Tree Reviews dislikes is one where the young boy is climbing a tree and hanging upside-down in a dangerous fashion; if he fell, he might be paralyzed. The other drawings are bright, colorful, and charming. Interestingly, Leslie Parrott also published an earlier edition to this book to in 2002, illustrated by Valeria Petrone.
