Developing at Different Paces
Oftentimes children develop at a different pace then those around them. This
can produce a negative self-concept, if not properly nurtured and supported by
those around them. Leo the Late Bloomer is a simple tale about being patient and
believing in yourself.
Leo, a young tiger, just isn’t doing what the other animals his age are doing. He’s clumsy and can’t read or write. His mother tells his father to be patient and Leo will bloom in his own time. Sure enough, one day much later, Leo blooms and is proud he made it.
