This clever story is about a boy who needs help tying his shoe because he forgot. His little brother helps him tie, going into full detail while the pictures illustrate how to do it. I would share this book with children who are trying to learn how to tie their shoes. ( )

A little boy has an untied shoe and doesn't know how to tie it. He can zip, button and Velcro, but not tie and it's keeping him from doing what he wants. His older brother finally comes along and teaches him how to tie his laces.

Personal reaction:
It made me remember when I learned to tie my shoes and how excited I was. When I got home I called up my dad at work, grandma and my aunt just to tell everyone.

Class extension:
Go through the steps of tying a shoe with your students, hopefully they'll pick it up as easy as the boy in the book.

Bring in a Velcro item, butting item, zipping item and tying item, experiment with your students all the different forms of keeping things together. ( )
