When the best-selling Leo the Late Bloomer was first published over twenty years ago, late bloomers everywhere cheered the story of a little tiger who grew in his own good time, in his own good way. Now new and old fans of Leo alike will cheer the arrival of Little Louie in the long-awaited sequel to Leo the Late Bloomer. This delightfully, deceptively simple tale, by the same team that brought us Leo, introduces Little Louie, Leos baby brother. Louie is an irrepressible, irresistible little tigerhis only problem, at least according to Leo, is that he cant do anything right. How Leo learns patience and acceptance will warm the hearts of all brothers and sisters, and make this tale of sibling frustration and love a treasure for years to come.

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.
