Each week in June, I’m featuring books about activities your children may be learning to do over the summer. Last week, I shared our favorite top 10 potty training books. This week we are moving on to tying your shoes! My little ones are still a few years away from learning to tie their own shoes, but I know many of you are working on this skill right now! So, here are our favorite books on learning to tie your shoes and fun books about shoes in general!
Books About Learning to Tie Your Shoes
Laura was inspired to create her own line of shoelaces to help teach kids how to tie their shoes. You can order the laces at her Etsy store, Shoelace Momma.
Red Lace, Yellow Lace by Mark Casey is an interactive book that allows your child to practice tying shoes with multi-colored laces while reading the story together.
Lucas and His Long Loopy Laces by Krystal Russell addresses the frustration that kids can have when learning to tie their shoes. Follow Lucas and his imagination on a loopy lace adventure.
So, there really aren’t a lot of books out there about learning to tie your shoes that I would recommend. The market could use some more! However, there are plenty of good reads about shoes in general that your new shoelace tier will enjoy. Here are some of our favorite books about shoes.
Books About Shoes
We love Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin. It has so much rhythm! Pete’s shoes turn different colors when he steps in different things. He always loves the new color. Litwin also has another great book about shoes, Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes.
Shoes by Elizabeth Winthrop was a Reading Rainbow selection from back in the day. It’s a long, silly, and cute list of all the things you can do in shoes. I really like the illustrations and the rhyme.
My Shoes Take Me Where I Want to Go by Marianne Richmond is a fun book that allows your imagination to soar to all the places your shoes can take you.
