Leo couldn't do anything right. (from the first line)
From the Publisher:
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. ‘Reassuring for other late bloomers, this book is illustrated with beguiling pictures.’—Saturday Review.

Poor Leo can't seem to do anything right, much to his frustration and that of his parents. But Leo overcomes his problems in his own good time. The pictures in this book are big and colorful.Leo is a sweet little lion cub who is taking his time to grow up. Although his friends Owl, Elephant, Snake, Plover, and Crocodile can already read, draw, eat neatly, and even write their names, Leo can't say or do much of anything. Leo's father is worried about his son's slow progress, but Leo's mother calmly explains that there is nothing to worry about: "Leo is just a late bloomer." As the seasons change, Leo continues to take his time to bloom, but then one day, all on his own, he does! Watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations accompany this gentle, reassuring story of individual growth, parental concern and patience, and great personal achievement.
