Bedtime Story: How to Tie a Shoe and Other Big Adventures by Skip Hill

Read for: Requested Review/ Netgalley

Synopsis: "Every kid knows that tying a shoe can be a big adventure, especially in a world full of spaghetti, birds' nests, camping trips, and seeing old friends after summer break.

How to Tie a Shoe & Other Big Adventures is the first in a series of handbooks by Penny Candy Books exploring and unraveling the complexities of some of childhood's most essential lessons."

My Review:  If you have ever been around little kids, you will know teaching how to tie a shoe is not the easiest thing in the world. I expected this book to have fun and easy ways to tie shoes and the like, however it was not exactly an instructional book. Even though it doesn't really teach you how to tie a shoe, it is a really good book that helps with the anxiety of learning and teaching. I love how this book compares learning to tie a shoe with other things that seem intimidating but turn out to be really easy, like twirling spaghetti on a spoon, or greeting old friends after not seeing them for a long time. I love the concept of this book and honestly would have liked more.

My Rating: Even though this wasn't exactly the book I was expecting, it turned out to be something pretty special.  I wasn't a huge fan of the illustration style but the idea is still conveyed nicely.  I give it a rating of Three Paws.

I received a complimentary copy of this book via Netgalley, the above is my honest review and opinion.

How to Tie a Shoe and Other Big Adventures is scheduled for release on Tuesday, March 10th so you can pre-order your copy now in print format from Amazon or Barnes & Noble or request it at your local library or independent bookstore.

Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
