Leo the tiger is not reading, or writing, or drawing, or even speaking, and his father is concerned. But Leo's mother isn't. She knows her son will do all those things, and more, when he's ready. With its message of patience and humor, Leo the Late Bloomer is sure to be a family favorite. ( )

This is a story about a young tiger cub who develops at a slower pace than he expects. His mom calls him a late bloomer but his dad worries that something is wrong and he'll never learn to talk, read, and write. After impatiently watching and waiting for his son, he realizes that he was indeed just a late bloomer. This story was very relatable to me because I too was a late bloomer and my dad was also worried about me. I didn't even hit my growth spurt until I was out of high school. I think this could be a great story to share with someone who may also be developing at a slower pace than what's expected. ( )
