So Few of Me
TITLE: So Few of Me
AUTHOR: Peter H. Reynolds
ILLUSTRATOR: Peter H. Reynolds
PUBLISHER: Candlewick Press
Leo has a long list of things to do. As he works on his list, he wonders if he could get the list done faster if there were two of him instead of just one. All of a sudden there is another Leo, then another, and another. Leo realizes that as there are more Leo's there is also more work. Maybe he does not need more Leo's after all!
The cover of this book sitting on the library shelf caught my eye. I found that the author/illustrator hand lettered the text. I like books that have a lesson that can be easily applied to the reader's life/situation. This is one of those books. We don't need more and more; sometimes we just need to stop and be the best we can be.
I recommend this book for your classroom or personal library.
