From the Publisher
It''s the board book with strings attached!-and the perfect gift
for preschoolers. Die-cut in the shape and size of a child''s
sneaker and featuring four sets of colorful laces threaded through
the sturdy board pages, The Zoo''s Shoes is the only book
of its kind: a hand''s-on guide that''s a delight to read, yet
functions as a practical learning tool.
Lynn Brunelle, author of Pop Bottle Science and Camp
Out!, has two children of "shoe-tying" age-the age when tying
your own shoes marks one more significant step toward independence.
This book makes it all easier, whether giving kids a place to
practice their skills again and again, or giving parents the help
they need to teach this curiously complicated task. It begins with
Bunny trying to show the other animals in the zoo how to tie their
laces, and then explains in illustrated step-by-step the basic
"bunny ears" method of making and tying loops, referring to the
book''s color-coded laces. Readers help the animals-the zebra, the
giraffe, tiger, crocodile, and leopard-tie their high-top
Zebra''s shoes are black-and-white.
She didn''t tie them very tight.
Would you tie them please?
Slip-ons and shoes with Velcro have their place, but there''s
nothing like a child''s feeling of Eureka! the first time he or she
ties those pesky laces.
