About the Book


Cleo can tie a bow. She learned from a rabbit and a fox. They can help you learn to tie one, too. Great parent-child activity for learning to tie a bow with any ribbon or string - including shoe laces.


My Review


Imaginative Story Helps Teach a Life Skill. Cleo Can Tie a Bow brings fun, creative characters to life to help little ones learn to tie bows. As a parent, teaching shoe tying skills sometimes requires a bit of creativity to keep the task learning from becoming dull. The author and illustrator create a colorful, fun story to give children a slightly different look at bow tying. 


The Author Offers Step by Step Bow-Tying Instructions. Sometimes, children just need to see (or read/hear) instructions presented in a slightly different way to encourage them to keep trying to master a new skill! The bow-tying tips and education that the author gives toward the end are well done and easy to understand. The book offers a great way to encourage the kids to follow the fox's directions (like Cleo does with her sash) and try the "fox's way" to learn bow tying. 


Would I Recommend Cleo Can Tie a Bow by Sybrina Durant? As three girls' mom, I think this is an adorable book for little girls to learn bow tying. Even my two tom-boy daughters still loved butterflies and bows--and pink things--and played many imaginative games with stuffed animals. The story is easy to read--and offers an opportunity to work on bow tying skills! The author even makes sure to remind readers that the bunny ears tied in her book are fictional--and that real bunnies or long-eared animals should never serve as bow-tying practice objects. Cleo Can Tie a Bow is a cute, imaginative way to illustrate a difficult skill to children, and I would recommend it to little girls especially learning to tie shoes and bows!
