Leo couldn't do anything right. He couldn't read or write. He couldn't draw. And he was a sloppy eater. Every day and every night Leo's father watched him for signs of blooming.
1. Make a list of things that you can do. Answer Wh-questions about each one.
What did you learn to do?
When did you learn to do it?
Who taught you how to do it
Why did you want to learn to do it?
2. The story was about Leo who bloomed like a flower. Discuss the word "bloom". Name other ways that children are like flowers. How many different flowers can you name (roses, carnations, etc.).
