Leo the Late Bloomer

by Robert Kraus, Windmill Books, Inc., 1971

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.).
