The ability to focus on one task at a time is a learned skill. When the solution to Leo's growing to-do list appears as a multiplication of Leo's because surely many hands lighten the load, the tasks multiply. Exhausted, Leo finds refuge in sleep and a dream made only for one. An adult-sized lesson, "What if I did less, but did my BEST?" written as a parable for kids. Classic Peter Reynolds.
Publisher Summary
After wishing there were two of him to complete all the items on his "to do" list, Leo discovers that the real problem is not the number of Leos, but the length of the list.

"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.
