Boo’s Shoes – A Rabbit and Fox Story: Learn To Tie Shoelaces

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.
