So Few Of Me by Peter Reynolds (Hardback)
"Just the message overscheduled families need in today's frantic world . . . delivered with humor and terrific artwork." — John de Graaf, national coordinator, Take Back Your Time
Leo's list of things to do keeps growing, until one day he wishes, "If only there were two of me." Just as the words are out of his mouth, poof! Another Leo appears! Two Leos become three, three become four, and four become more . . . but Leo can't help but notice that he has even more to do than before. As he struggles to deal with his overcomplicated life, Leo realizes that there may be a simpler solution to his overscheduling woes. Peter H. Reynolds, the award-winning author-illustrator of THE DOT and ISH, returns with an important message for readers of all ages: stop and take a little time to dream.

"Charming ink, watercolor, and tea illustrations in Reynolds’ signature style depict overworked Leo, who thinks he could accomplish more if only there were two of him. He quickly learns the opposite is true--the more Leos, the more work to be done. Reynolds (The Dot, Ish) has produced another tiny treasure with a timely message for today’s rush-around society. Read this aloud to listeners ages 8 to 80 for its message on letting trivial things go and giving your best to what’s really important."
"This book has a simple lesson and states it clearly "what if I did less but did my best?" This is the perfect book for children who are finding more often than not that they are overscheduled and burnt out at an early age. I think this could be read aloud to early elementary kids."
