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.
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.” She also offers a little book that makes a perfect gift for boys in a wedding party.
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.”
