"Slowly, Slowly, Slowly," Said the Sloth (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition)by Eric Carle, Jane Goodall
slowly, slowly, slowlythat's the way the sloth moves. slowly, it eats and then, slowly, it falls asleep. what strange kind of creature is this? the other animals wonder. why doesn't it run or fly or play or hunt like the rest of us? "why are you so slow?" the howler monkey inquires. but the sloth doesn't answer any questions until the jaguar asks, "why are you so lazy?" Anyone who has ever felt too busy will appreciate the sloth's peaceful lifestyle and realize that it's okay to take time to enjoy life. eric Carle's dazzling collage illustrations introduce readers to the exotic beauty of the Amazon rain forest and the many unusual animals living there.

This book sparked many question from my 3 year old. He wanted to know my the sloth moved so slow and what wrong with doing things fast. very interesting book with different points to discover.
Great Book! Not only are Eric Carles illustrations fantastic, the the story is so sweet. I love reading this to our 2 year old because it shows him that moving slowly can be relaxing and tranquil! ;) I know he just loves the pictures of all the animals and he especially laughs at all the word that Eric Carle uses for lazy. The story behind this is awesome! Just because you move slowly, doesn't mean your lazy! Too Fun!
Relaxing sweet book of the sloths life and how he takes it very slowly. Great bedtime story. Calming and reassuring to little ones.
