A story perfect for kids just learning to tie their own laces from Vivian French for Egmont's green banana series. Bill Bird has got some really cool new boots. The problem is, he can't untie his laces! So when he goes Molly Mouse's party, he treads on everyone's toes. Finally, Molly helps him undo them. But then there's another problem. He can't tie them again! Three delightful stories about the trials of a young bird and his new boots. Green bananas are divided into short, simple stories to develop reading techniques over a number of sessions. They are suitable for NC Level 1 readers. Green Bananas are carefully designed with education in mind, supporting children's understanding of how to read longer books. Green bananas only use one clause in each sentence and rely on dialogue and speech bubbles to encourage reading aloud.
