Boo's Shoes - Learn To Tie Shoelaces
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 in celebration of conquering this difficult task.

Boo is an adorable little bunny who loves shoes. He has tons of shoes: flip-flops, clogs, wheeled shoes, slippers, cowboy boots and on and on and on. These shoes have one thing in common.... none have laces! Why should Boo learn to tie annoying strings if he doesn't need to?

One day his good fox friend Farah knocks on his door with a mysterious box. When Boo opens it up he discovers the gift is a pair of new shoes... with laces! Oh no! Boo wants nothing to do with shoes he has to tie. Farah encourages him and promises to help him along with the process. She says it's a skill he needs to know. It's not only for tying up shoes she tells him but for other things as well. She goes on to explain that it is used for ropes to rig a sail, to fly a kite, to tie fly when you fish and to make a bracelet to share with a friend, just to name a few.

Finally Boo agrees to give it a go and with patience and practice he succeeds at something he has dreaded for so long. Now that he can tie he feels he can accomplish anything! Hurray for Boo!

The illustrations are wonderful and very helpful. At the back of the book the author offers step-by-step instructions as how to tie up a pair of shoes with laces. Referring to both the visuals and the text small kids will be able to learn this valuable skill easily. This educational book with its interactive component will be a blessing for both parents and kids. I highly recommend it.
