Boo’s Shoes – A Rabbit and Fox Story – Coming Soon!

Boo’s Shoes is by Sybrina Durant with illustrations by Pumudi Gardiyawasam.

No Laces! That’s what Boo, the bunny, always says.  He doesn’t want to learn to tie them. He has plenty of shoes for every occasion and none of them have laces or strings. So, what’s the point of learning to tie? His friend, Farah Fox, convinces him that it’s a skill he can use. . . and one that might make him happier, too.

This book is meant to be a parent-child activity.  Youngsters can read Boo’s story and their parents can help with the how-to-tie instruction pages. A fun shoelace-themed “I Did It” badge is included at the back of the book to give as a reward for conquering this difficult task.

This is the story of how Farah Fox taught the bunny Boo, to tie a “bunny ear” bow with his shoe laces.

The book will be available for Kindle, Epub, Paperback and in Hard Back.

Sybrina is the author of the Rabbit and Fox series of “Learn To Tie Books” which include the books “Learn To Tie A Tie With The Rabbit and the Fox” in English, Spanish and Tagalog; plus “Cleo Can Tie A Bow”, “Nellie Knows How To Knot A Neck Scarf” and “Ned Knows How To Knot A Neck Tie.”

Exercises in manual dexterity build self-esteem in children. Knowing how to tie shoe-strings, scarves and more into a bow is a useful and rewarding skill.

“Teach a child a useful skill. Build confidence and self-esteem that lasts a lifetime.”

The book will be published soon! For now, enjoy a few pics from the very talented Pumudi Gardiyawasam!

No Laces Lyrics

(Boo) No Laces!

Verse 1

I don’t wanna tie them.

I don’t even wanna try ‘em.

Just get ‘em away.

Get ‘em away from me.

Get ‘em away from me.

(Boo) It gives me the blues to look at shoes that have those stringy things.

(Farah) Hey! You can choose to tie your shoes. It’s easier than you think.


(Farah) You can tie them, Yes you can.

Just take those laces in both hands.

Loop and swoop and tie them off.

You can show them who’s the boss.

You can do it.

You can do it

Yes, you can.

(Boo) No, I can’t. . .

(Farah) Yes, you can. . .

(Boo) NO. ..I . . .can’t.

Verse 2

(Boo) I don’t wanna tie ‘em.

I don’t even want to try again.

(Farah) Oh. . .come on. . .

Try it again for me.

(Farah) All you gotta do is practice just a few more times.

Every move and every step, I’ll be by your side.

(Farah) Repeat Chorus

(Boo) Modified Chorus

I can tie them, Yes I can.

I’ll take those laces in both hands

Loop and Swoop and tie them off.

I will show them I’m the boss.

I can do it.

I can do it.

Yes, I can.

(Farah) Yes, you can.

(Boo and Farah) Yes, we can.
