Sybrina Durant believes that if a child is taught a skill while young, that lesson will be remembered forever. Whether learning to lace up shoes, knot a necktie or master any other seemingly complicated knot, being taught with stories, pictures and songs, makes recollection easier later in life. This word, image or sound association, formally known as mnemonics, has been used throughout the ages to help people quickly access memories of things they learned in the past. Learn To Tie A Tie With The Rabbit And The Fox, storybook with instructional song, uses all the senses to enhance recall. The song can be heard in all three languages for free at http://www.sybrina.com.
This is an excellent book for all ages and is intended to be a fun family activity. It will be enjoyed by anyone who needs to learn to tie a necktie, or not! Even those who may not need to know how to tie a tie will love the illustrations, and the nail biting chase around the woods. Book reviews are available at Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/
