MONDAY: So Few of Me
I am a huge fan of Peter H. Reynolds! I enjoy his illustrations in other books, and I have several of his picture books on my personal bookshelf. So Few of Me is a clever book for both adults and kids. It is about Leo, a boy with a to do list that will make yours seem insignificant. Some additional Leos come along to help him with his list, but instead of lightening his load, it makes Leo feel even busier than ever. Leo has to decide what is really most important in his life.
Kids will enjoy the extra Leos and the fun pictures of them working furiously. The busy among us might heed the message to step out of our busy lives and take a little time to dream.
