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:

Cleo Can Tie a Bow: A Rabbit and Fox Story is a very cheerful read that teaches young children about a useful life skill: bow-tying, which also works for shoe-tying. Cleo is a little girl who is so fond of bows that bows can be found virtually everywhere in her life. She even paints mini bows on her nails. In order to get her bows in a consistent way, she learns how to tie a nice-looking bow from her favorite plush toys: a lop rabbit who wants to keep her long ears off the ground and a friendly fox who likes to help.

With bright colored illustrations and cute characters, the book provides clear, easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions for tying a bow in real life. The story concludes with lyrics for the theme song and a link to the music video, which includes a helpful animated demonstration of how to tie a bow. I expected the book to appeal to girls more because of its extensive use of pink bows, but it turned out that my little boy loves the book very much. He finds it funny and engaging. Interestingly, he enjoys counting the number of bows that appear on each page of the book.

I like that the story encourages the reader to become more independent, to learn to take care of themselves and to be a creative problem-solver. As the author points out on the back of the book, excercises in manual dexterity help build confidence and self-esteem in children. I did have to warn my son against trying to tie up the ears of a real bunny when he asked to see what a real lop rabbit looks like. It's good to see that the author includes a written note to tell the young readers not to apply their new skill to any living animal. Overall, it is a fun and educational book I feel good about sharing with my children.
