Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everyone Is Different This is a lovely little book that tells the story of Leo, the tiger. Poor Leo is different from all the other little tigers. He just can't seem to keep up and doesn't do what he's supposed to. His father is worried, but not his mom. She knows that Leo's just a latebloomer. A great story to help kids understand that everyone is different and that although they may not be able to do something the first time, eventually, if they keep trying, they may finally do it. It was a great book to read to my little late bloomer who could totally relate to poor Leo.
