Leo the Late Bloomer- Book Review

We recently checked out this book at the library and I fell in love with it. I love the overall message. The main character is Leo and while all of his friends are writing neatly, reading and talking quietly, Leo has yet to master these skills. Of course while reading it I think of Logan and how he feels as school with everyone around him writing neatly and cutting in straight lines. Eventually when no one is looking Leo blossoms and someday Logan will too.

I just love when books can tell a story that children can relate to, and when they're done well, can strengthen a message we're already trying to send to our children. Good find!

Ha, I think this book would be valuable for grownups too.

I think this will be purchased for Logan's class next year. Good one to have around I think.

Logan will blossom and the world better be ready. This is one little man who will make a difference.
