This little girl loves shoes! And now she's learning how to tie them. In addition to an adorable and easy-to-read story, this title includes detailed illustrated instructions that show how to tie a shoe. Level 1 readers will be off and tying their own shoes in no time!
Illustrated by Amy Wummer.
I thought my precocious 5-year-old granddaughter would have great fun with this. Her favorite things are shoes and problem solving puzzles.
When she and I could not make heads or tails of the illustrations, I thought it was just that we were distracting each other and I left her to figure it out on her own with a big shoe.
Eventually she threw the book aside in defeat and allowed as how she'll keep on with her bunny ears technique.
Later, I sat with the book (and shoe) myself and tried my darnedest to end up with tied shoelaces based on the steps (1-7) given.
No helpful instructions appear, just illustrations by a person who color codes the laces and then reverses the colors for step 7, by which time it really doesn't matter.
This book should be taken off the market.
Tying shoes is a milestone for a child's sense of accomplishment and competence.
Causing readers to surrender to hopelessness and to doubt their capabilities instead is outrageous.
