“ I really loved the story “Learn to Tie a tie with Rabbit & the Fox,” written by Sybrina Durant. I loved the illustrations by Donna Marie Naval because they look so cool and real. Especially the one where his eyes are huge and scared, it looks so awesome! I was hoping the fox didn't catch the rabbit. I had a hard time reading the title because it is in cursive and I can't read in cursive but Mom helped me. I also learned how to tie a tie. Mom got one of Dad's ties and we tied it! It took two times but the directions and the pictures showed me exactly how to do it! My nine year old brother loved the pictures and he was able to tie his tie the first time with the help of this book! Guess who is tying the next tie? My sixteen year old brother is reading it, so he can learn how to tie his tie for the Military Ball at school next Month!
