(Feature} - Learn To Tie A Bow With Cleo

Learning to tie a bow can help children build confidence and self-esteem. 


I tied my first bow when I was a six-year-old in kindergarten class, where my classmates and I were learning how to tie shoestrings on big plastic shoes. At the time, I was used to wearing Velcro shoes, so I had a bit of trouble tying a shoelace bow. Well, that is until a fellow student, Andrea, taught me how to loop, swoop, and pull. From then on, I had no trouble tying shoestrings.

Now available to own on Kindle, Paperback, and Hardcover is CLEO CAN TIE A BOW: A RABBIT AND FOX STORY written by Sybrina Durant with illustrations by Pumdi Gardiyawasam. It's part of a series of picture books that teach children how to make bows. The other titles in the series are Nellie Knows How To Knot A Neck Scarf and Ned Knows How To Knot A Neck Tie.

features two tales in one story. It centers on a girl named Cleo who's crazy about bows. She wears bows in her hair and decorates her room with beautiful bows that she tied all by herself. She knows that some kids don't know how to make a bow, so she tells us, readers, a story about a little long-eared rabbit and a clever fox, who teaches the rabbit how to keep her ears clean. From this story, Cleo learned how to tie a 'bunny ear' bow, and young readers will learn how to make the same bow, which they can use for numerous things, such as hair clips, gift boxes, decorations, homemade greeting cards, etc.

If you're a fan of bows, then you are in luck, because author Sybrina Durant has a Girls Love Bows Gift Shop on her blog at, where you can purchase the CLEO CAN TIE A BOW book, CLEO-themed items, such as a mug, bag, t-shirts, etc. and many other cute bow products.
