"Learn to Tie a Tie with the Rabbit & the Fox" by Sybrina Durant & Illustrated by Donna Marie Naval (Review & Giveaway)

It seems that fewer and fewer men are wearing ties in today's world and the little boys are simply not learning how to tie a tie. But society does require or demand a tie to be worn by gentlemen at least on some occasions.  So don't forget to teach the boys to tie a tie - someday he may need to dress appropriately for a special occasion or a job that requires the wearing of a tie.

Sybrina Durant has written a cute little book that teaches how to go about tying a tie. There is also a cute little song about it. (click the link below to hear the cute song)

The story begins as rabbit strays and then finds something succulent to nibble on. But nearby was fox! Then the chase is on......

On each page of the book you will see the story of the rabbit and the fox as the poor little bunny runs and hides from the fox. Also on the page are illustrated steps on how to tie the young man's tie. And he, too, is pictured as he goes through the tie-tying steps. 

Pros: A cute story. Nicely illustrated. Gets the job done of teaching a young man how to tie a tie in a delightful way.
Cons: A CD of the song tucked away in a pocket in the back would be a real plus. The paperback version of the book I received doesn't lay flat without really breaking the spine or bending pages. An instructional book would be better served if it would lay flat.

GIVEAWAY: The author is graciously providing a copy for one of Chat With Vera's readers.  This would be especially nice to help that little boy in your life learn to tie a tie. Begins April 28 & ENDS May 14 @ 12:01 a.m. EDT. Open USA addresses only.
