Leo the Late Bloomer

Written by Robert Kraus • Illustrated by Jose Aruego

Reviewed by Ronald A. (age 7)

This story is about a late bloomer. He reminds me about when I couldn't do stuff. Leo the tiger is late to read and write and color. He feels sad. His mom and dad try to help him. This story teaches me to learn how to do things.

The part I liked best is when Leo learned how to write. The story reminds me of when I was a baby an I never got to read until I was six. Now I am seven. My favorite character is Leo because he used to be like me.

Teachers should like to read this book. My friends and other kids would love this book too!
