This book is a fun family read!
Nellie loves dressing up. She loves wearing pretty dresses, fun hats, cute shoes and long flowy scarves. Scarves are Nellie’s very favorite accessory.
But knotting neck scarves can be very tricky, with all the twists and turns and loopity loops required to get the knot just so. Not to worry, though. Clever little Nellie remembers a cute little story she once heard about a fox chasing a little rabbit. Their movements, through the forest, help her remember how to tie a “Necktie knot” in her scarf.
This little story is called a mnemonic. It’s purpose is to help you REMEMBER! Exercises in manual dexterity build self-esteem in children. Knowing how to tie shoe-strings, neckties, scarves or any other knot is a useful and rewarding skill.
“Teach a child a useful skill. Build confidence and self-esteem that lasts a lifetime.” Author—Sybrina Durant
Suggestion: Make this a fun activity for all participants. If you have some old scarves (or neck ties) that have been hanging in the closet for years, grab one for each person and follow along as you read the book.
