If you’ve ever eaten spaghetti or pointed out a bird’s nest to a friend in spring . . . you can probably tie a shoe! An illustrated poem that uses wordplay and figurative language for a new take on the how-to genre for kids.
This picture book shows that learning is always an act of discovery through intricate black-and-white illustrations with playful hand-lettered text. How to Tie a Shoe & Other Big Adventures is the first story in a series of handbooks by Penny Candy Books that explore and unravel the complexities of some of childhood’s most essential lessons.
EDITORIAL REVIEW: “Ultimately, this book uses learning to tie a shoe as a metaphor for personal growth and experiential learning—with the beauty and challenges that accompany both. A quirky picture book that respects the intelligence of children.”—Kirkus Reviews.
