I ordered this book for my 4 year old daughter.
James K. Gunter
The fact that it has 2 different colored laces really helps kids differentiate between laces and have a much easier time figuring it all out.
DarthKater
After reading this book together about three times in one sitting she learned how to tie, all by herself.

I was disappointed with this book and returned it. It teaches tying laces by making two loops and tying the loops together. I was looking for a book that taught the "one-loop, wrap around, push through" method.
On the plus side, it is a very sturdy book that would take much abuse from a small child.

After spending a few months trying to teach my then four year old how to tie her shoes (and succeeding only in frustrating her), her babysitter gave her this book as a gift. Within a week or two, she was tying her shoes perfectly! I like the books construction (it's a board book) and the model shoe and illustrations that teach shoe tying with a little catchy poem. The shoe model at the bottom of the book has one lace in it that is red on one end and yellow on the other and the different colors makes shoe tying easier for beginners. This book is now my "standard" gift to children turning four.

The book is a wonderful book, but the lace is not anchored to the book. Your toddler can pull it out and wrap it around his or her neck. Make sure you anchor it to the book (with glue or tape on the back)

I have used this book in therapy to teach older kids (who had given up) to learn to tie their shoes. This tool has especially been successful with people who learn visually. There are a few pictures that I find a little confusing, that is why the 4 star rating, so I turn the pages as they tie and I skip over those. I basically use 4 - 6 of the pictures. I give the minimal verbal prompts of criss-cross, down and through for each section (twice). I have 2 books. You can use one to model if you need to, and after they learn to tie with the book, I take the shoe lace out of the 2nd book and put it in their shoe. Then they can continue to follow the colors if they need to on the actual shoe until they are doing it independently. Very exciting for them to see success after years of failed attempts!

We purchased this book because our daughter is great at learning rhymes and we thought it would help her learn to tie her shoe. We were dissappointed that it teaches the "rabbit ears" knot, but even more dissappointed to find two of the illustrations out of sequence. That type of error make learning very difficult.

My 4-year-old daughter practiced with this book for about two weeks and is now the only child in her class that can tie her own shoes. She is so proud of herself! I think this is a wonderful book, with an excellent use of rhyme to teach someone how to tie shoes. I would recommend it for any child who is ready to try to tie their shoes on their own.

I ordered this book for my 4 year old daughter. We picked it up at the post office Saturday and she started practicing in the car on the way home. By the time we got home, she had already tied the laces twice! The different colored laces defintely help in the learning process.

I ordered this for my son who is mildly autistic. He has been very discouraged attempting to learn to tie his shoe. Usually our shoe tying attempts have resulted in tears and meltdowns. (sometimes from me, lol)
He initially was very reluctant to try this book, but on the very first attempt he was able to tie the laces. He was very proud of this accomplishment and even showed his younger brother how to tie the laces. I would recommend this book to anyone that needs to teach either a young child or someone with ASD how to lace and tie shoes.
