Bobos Babes Adventures: The Missing Egg by Karen M. Bobos was an adventurous tale highlighting the goodness in people. Three sisters, all living in a land called Harmony, were known for their good deeds. Angel Scarlett, Princess Daphne, and Cora (the fairy) used their magical powers to spread joy and help those residing in their charmingly named land.
In this tale, the Bobos Babesbanded together to help a swan find his missing unhatched baby. During their search for the bundle of joy, we meet three of swan’s buddies.
Young readers will love all the animals and the sweet sisters. For the animal friends, Emily Hercock (illustrator) gave all of them a distinct personality. For me, I loved sunglass-wearing Armando, the armadillo.
As for the three sisters, their dresses were not all pink, and this will please young kids who don’t fancy the color pink—like my daughter.
On a side note, I loved the “Did you know” bubble in the story. I did not know the fun fact. (no spoilers) 🙂

Bobos began writing poetry and stories at the early age of ten. She is a life-long Chicagoan who now raises her family in the downtown area. During the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic, Chicago also became a city of unrest. Trying to keep her three young daughters in a world of magic during such scary times, the Bobos Babes Adventures were born. Her goal was to create a world of Harmony for her family and hopefully for others to escape, even if only for a moment. The first book of the series, The Case of the Giggles, was published in December 2020. The Missing Egg launched in March 2021. Thus far, she has written ten Bobos Babes Adventures and two chapter books. Two additional books, The Lion’s Secret and The Bobcat Birthday Party, are coming in 2021. connect with the author: website ~ facebook ~ instagram
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.”

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. 😀
I’ve been writing creative and technical works for years. Many of my songs are on Youtube and Itunes. Two of my books are available as ebooks online. They are “Learn To Tie A Tie WIth The Rabbit And The Fox” and “Sybrina’s Phrase Thesaurus”.
