Grades: Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st

Synopsis: Leo isn’t reading, or writing, or drawing, or even speaking, and his father is concerned. But Leo’s mother isn’t. She knows her son will do all those things, and more, when he’s ready.

Debrief Questions:

  • Why was Leo’s father worried? Have you ever been worried about not being able to achieve what you wanted?
  • What are some things that you can’t do yet?
  • What is “patience”? What is “perseverance”? Why is it important to be patient or to persevere if you’re a “late bloomer”?
