"Slowly, Slowly, Slowly," Said the Sloth

(1 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Puffin

Sloth lives in the rainforest with pumas, bats, monkeys and many more animals. Sloth's fellow creatures can't understand why he is so quiet, so slow and so lazy.

Eventually, after many inquisitions Sloth replies with dazzling lyricism and elegance. Carle’s illustrations of the rainforest are beautiful and painted in an array of jewel-like colours.

The book contains a foreword by Jane Goodall and an illustrated glossary of all the animals featured. Children will love spotting and identifying the different animals too.

This book is a wonderful introduction to the rainforest and explores the benefits of taking time out to live life slowly, slowly, slowly.
