Robert Kraus's Little Louie the Baby Bloomer picks up where the 1971 classic Leo the Late Bloomer leaves off. This time, young Leo (the original late-blooming tiger) is on the scene to help his little brother Louie, who seems to be a late bloomer, too. Leo is distressed that his little brother can't throw a ball or pull a wagon, can't talk, and doesn't even know how to play--"So Leo stopped trying to play with Little Louie and decided to teach Louie instead." Day and night, these brotherly life lessons continue, until one day, on his own, Little Louie finally blooms. (His first word is "Leo," of course!) Simple, spare prose and the artful, endearing illustrations of Jose Aruego and Ariane Dewey make this sweet story of late-blooming, patience, and sibling love come to life. (Baby to preschool) --Karin Snelson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From Publishers Weekly
About this sequel to Leo the Late Bloomer, PW said, "Little Louie's earnest attempts to learn are just as endearing as Leo's attempts to bloom were in the original incarnation." Ages 4-8. (May)

She loves this book! She is 5 and is not able to "read" herself yet. She loves that she can guess what the words say because of the wonderful illustration and simple pages. It is a book that is read at least 3 times a week for the last year. The interaction between the siblings is sweet and uplifting. Her only other sister is 12 so it hits home with kids that can't do what the older kids do, and to the older kids that are slowed down by the younger ones. It lets kids know, in a simple way that is easy for young 'uns to understand, that all kids will eventually be able to do the same things that the older ones can do.... some are just later "bloomers". Wonderful book and now we are going to get the prequel about when the older brother was young called "leo the late bloomer". Hope this helped!
