Book Review/Giveaway: Learn to Tie a Tie with the Rabbit & the Fox. Ends June 19th.

Learn To Tie a Tie

Learn to Tie a Tie with the Rabbit and the Fox: Story and Instructional Song by Sybrina Durant and Illustrated by Donna Marie Naval.

About the Book: Learn To Tie A Tie With The Rabbit and the Fox is a cute story offering a fun and simple lesson for tying a “school boy knot”. If you are young at heart, you will be rooting for the Little Rabbit to escape the snapping jaws of the very hungry Fox as they race through the forest mimicking the motions of tying a tie.

My Review: A book parents and their children can read together, learning how to tie a tie based on the Rabbit and the Fox story.

While looking for food one afternoon, the little Rabbit strayed from the safety of his home. While munching on a juiciest shoots he failed to hear the soft padding of footsteps approaching from behind. The Rabbit found himself face to face with a gray Fox. The Rabbit bounded away while the Fox ran after him. “Once around the tree the Fox chased the Rabbit. Twice around the tree, the little Rabbit fled with the Fox close behind.”

The Rabbit and the Fox is a clever way of learning how to tie a tie. It reminds me about the story I learned as a child to tie my shoe lace.

Each page tells the story of the Rabbit and the Fox and below the page a young man gives an illustration on how to tie a tie. The last page has the lyrics of Tie a Tie with the Rabbit and the Fox.

I highly recommend this book.

Pages: 24

  4. I heard this story before as a good way to teach a son to tie a tie. It would be helpful to add what age group the author had in mind. I hope to win to give this as a gift to my daughters’ little friend.
