Cleo Can Tie A Bow: A Rabbit and Fox Story by Sybrina Durant (Book Review)

(Ages 3-7), 38 pages

Cleo loves bows. She wears her hair in a bow and decorates her room with bows. Cleo is bow crazy. Learning to tie a bow is very difficult for some people but Cleo remembers how to do it from a cute story she once heard. It is about a little rabbit with very long ears and a very helpful fox who shows her what to do to keep them clean.
This is the story of how Cleo learns to tie a “bunny ear” bow. Exercises in manual dexterity build self-esteem in children. Knowing how to tie shoe-strings, scarves and more into a bow is a useful and rewarding skill.
“Teach a child a useful skill. Build confidence and self-esteem that lasts a lifetime.”
Other books in the “Learn To Tie With The Rabbit and the Fox” series are the book with that name in English, Spanish and Tagalog plus “Nellie Knows How To Knot A Neck Scarf” and “Ned Knows How To Knot A Neck Tie.”

I received a complimentary copy of this book from iRead Book Tours. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

My 5yo niece loved Cleo Can Tie A Bow by Sybrina Durant from the very start. When she saw Cleo had her hair tied up in a bow, she asked if I could tie her hair up as well. My attempt didn’t look half as adorable as Cleo’s. Pumudi Gardiyawasam, the illustrator, did a marvelous job creating such a cute, perfect bow. Pumudi, along with Sybrina (the author), did a remarkable job explaining both in script and imagery how to tie a bow. The close-up images will become helpful when my niece decides to forgo velcro shoes and finally get lace-up sneakers. 🙂

After we finished reading Cleo Can Tie A Bow, we looked up the link at the end of the story. The link will direct you to the author’s YouTube channel, where there are several videos with Cleo singing about tying a bow. This added feature will help young readers feel more connected to the story and cause many ear-worms for kids and parents. 😀

Would I recommend Cleo Can Tie A Bow?
Yes, for grades preschool through second.
