I remember hearing the story of the rabbit and the fox when it came to learning how to tie a tie, but I grew up with sisters, so my dad never had to teach us how to tie a tie. Now that I have a son, he watches his dad get ready in the morning. When he needs to work on his own tie for special occasions, he still struggles with the steps. With Sybrina Durant's approach with mnemonics and appealing illustrations, he will be able to get his own tie ready for the upcoming weddings, banquets, and other special occasions. I only wish I learned about this book sooner!
My son is on the autism spectrum and loves his ties. My husband has a collection of hundreds of ties and my son has a strong desire to compete with that collection. He would wear ties every single day if he could. Problem is he can't because we don't always have time to tie them for him. Although he hasn't completely learned how to tie one yet this book has gone a long way in almost achieving that goal. I have no doubt he will be fully taught in a couple weeks. This is amazing for him. Now I just need a similar book for him to tie his shoes... I love this book and the illustrations are perfect and easy to follow. The book itself is paperback and large sized making it so easy for my son to see and handle while trying to follow the instructions. Excellent instructional yet entertaining book. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
