Leo the Late Bloomer

Leo the Late Bloomer - Robert Kraus, José Aruego

Leo is not like his friends.  And in a classroom, no two students will be alike.  We don't look like one another; we don't write like one another; we have different habits and quirky ways like no other.....  This is a brightly illustrated, simple story of Leo, who finally figures some things out that his friends have been doing for a while.  An excellent story to make students aware of the differences within the classroom, Leo the Late Bloomer is sure to be a hit at the beginning of the school year with any elementary grade.  It is always important to remind students that we are all unique in our abilities.
