Leo the Late Bloomer is another in the vast series of books that made my childhood the happy time it was. I know it has a message about bolstering self esteem and being special in who you are, and in feeling confident that if you wait and do your best, your unique talents will blossom before the world, but you know, twenty years later none of that matters a hill of beans to me. What I seriously recall most is that is the colors in Leo are simply wonderful.

“Captivating and rollicking.” —The Horn Book

Leo isn't 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.

This heartwarming story of how a little tiger named Leo bloomed is told by bestselling author Robert Kraus and is accompanied by the wonderfully bold illustrations of Jose Aruego.

With its message of patience and humor, Leo the Late Bloomer is more timely than ever. As Children's Books and Their Creators commented: "Leo's reassuring 'I made it!' at the end delights young listeners who may have been scrutinized for early blooming by well-intentioned moms and dads. Deserves space on any parenting shelf."

I grew up with this book and rediscovered it as a parent. Leo the tiger is having trouble doing all the normal things that his peers can do- eat neatly, play with flowers, make snowmen, write, read, etc. In his own good time he "blooms" and is able to do everything the others were doing, only better. While this is a nice sentiment, as a special needs parent I do have some criticisms. Not all children "bloom" as well as Leo. They may bloom late or not at all. Or when they do bloom it may be in their own way, but not necessarily exceptional compared with their peers, and that's okay too. It's still a good book, and a lesson all parents should take to heart about letting their children develop at their own pace, but the end is not as great as I once thought.

I have loved this book since I bought it back in the early 1980's for my very sweet third son. He had two older brothers and didn't speak as soon or as articulately as they did. He also had learning disabilities and other issues that I know some parents would consider serious developmental problems -- but my viewpoint was that he was perfect just the way he was, and would grow out of anything that seemed to be a "challenge" at that point in his young life. So, when I found this book it touched my heart because it mirrored exactly how I felt about my son! I highly recommend this book for everyone!

In a world in which every middle class parent worries if their child isn't top notch in everything, this book is a beautiful classic to remind us all to relax. I collect children's books, and my husband suggested this one, as he loved it as a child. When I got it, I loved it immediately. It assures children and parents that people progress at different levels, but everybody blooms. My husband was a very small child, shorter than everyone in his class, and this book brought him comfort and encouraged him in what he was good at. About 20 or 25 years later, he's a self-confident, very socially adept doctor! I remember struggling very much in kindergarten and first grade with everything from cutting to skipping to math to reading. Everything clicked for me around 2nd or 3rd grade, and school became a breeze after that. I became self-assured, and successful. I wish I'd had this book when I was struggling with those things... I might have been more confident from the start!

For the reviewer concerned that parents would delay help for their children, I doubt a kid's book would have that effect. Parents can tell when something is wrong, and one children's book is going to sway them from taking action!

Oh, and the big bonus... the illustrations are darling, and classic 1970's renderings. The words are absolutely heartwarming!

Beautiful story and perfect for my girl with Childhood Apraxia of Speech.

The binding of our book begin to fall apart after being opened three times, on the day we received it. My husband and I both read through it first. When my daughter came home from school, she was flipping through it before I read it to her and pages fell out. Very disappointing to have to tape up a brand new book.

One of the all-time great stories for pre-K - Gr. 2. I use it as the source storytelling with puppets with students. It is very sucessful for theater-in-the classroom.

This is a lovely simple story about Leo, a tiger who in the beginning can not do a lot of things; however, with time he learns to do everything he needs to. Some will find the negative beginning a bit off-putting, but in the end we can all identify with Leo: it takes different people different amounts of time to "bloom" depending on the activity. This is a good book to use if you are talking to your class about differences.

I had this book decades ago when my children were small. I refer to it often to my clients (I am a therapist) because the message is so delightful...."and Leo bloomed!"... And I finally bought a new copy for my office. There is nothing better than childrens' books to elucidate sucesses in life.
This is a beautiful story to read to a young autistic or slow to develop child. I love the drawings. I had to return the book however because by the time I was ready to give and read this book to my grandson, he was already talking more like a teenager than his two and a half year old self.
