Description

Poor Leo, a young tiger, is having a really rough time; all of his friends can read, write, draw, eat neatly, and speak clearly, and Leo can't do any of those things very well. Worried and sad, Leo wonders if he'll ever catch up to his friends. His father is concerned as well, and asks Leo's mother if their son has a problem. With love and understanding, she replies that Leo is just a late bloomer, and alleviates the father's fears. Finally, Leo's mom and dad help and encourage him, and Leo eventually does learn to draw, write, read, and even eat, without making a big mess!
With its full-color, exuberant illustrations and sensitively written text, this story may help readers who are worried about "falling behind" understand that their life can change for the better with patience and hard work. The message may also help children who are "on target" understand that their friends may need a little extra help. Besides being a top-notch read-aloud for any classroom, it's also a perfect read for children who may feel a little behind in class.
"Reassuring for late bloomers, this book is illustrated with beguiling pictures." - Saturday Review
