This book was just what I was needing. I have been reading many dark and depressing novels so when I had a chance to read this book, I knew it was fate. Life in the Sloth Lane is a book that has adorable sloths and some good inspirational quotes. It was almost like I wasmeditating when I was reading. It calmed me down, made me smile and I even learned new facts about sloths. If you enjoy sloths, need some time just to breathe, and like learning something new, this is the book for you. Seriously, it is adorable.

Learn the secrets to contentment from the best in the world! Life in the Sloth Lane is a little gift book stuffed full of inspirational quotes about contentment, mindfulness, and taking life as it comes. Interspersed are dozens of pictures of that most meditative of critters- the sloth, along with lots of neat facts about them. I adore sloths! This little beasties were made for hugging, and they seem so gentle and good-natured. You really can't look at a sloth without smiling. Who better to present these valuable life lessons? This would be a great coffee table book, or the perfect gift for any animal lover. ***Many thanks to Netgalley and Workman Publishing for providing an egalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Adorable and relaxing! Thanks to NetGalley and Workman Publishing for the opportunity to read and review Life in the Sloth Lane by Lucy Cooke! The book is full of wonderful photographs of sloths, that look like they’re smiling, naturally interspersed with appropriate and meaningful quotes and sloth facts. One of my favorite quotes from the book, “Surrender to what is. Let go of what was. Have faith in what will be." -Sonia Ricotti. Another quote I love- “The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper." -Eden Phillpotts. Profound wisdom! I smiled through the entire reading of this book and I’m sure my heart rate slowed to relaxation mode- adorable and inspiring! 5 stars ! * I received a complimentary copy of this book for voluntary review consideration.

I'm not sure what my favorite part of this book was. The entire book is a collection of sloth-related facts, followed by inspirational quotes guiding readers to learn from the sloth lifestyle. It's illustrated with wonderful photographs showing the adorable animals in a myriad of habitats. I found myself bookmarking quotes every few pages so I could revisit them afterwards.

Sloths!!! One of my very favourite animals! I can't see a photograph of a sloth and not smile. I especially love three-toed sloths, those gorgeous creatures with perpetual smiles and great affection for eyeliner. I'm a huge fan of Lucy Cooke's previous book, A Little Book of Sloth, so when I found out she had another book coming out I was jumping up and down calling, "Pick me! Pick me!" Filled with the most adorable photos of baby sloths, adult sloths, two-toed sloths, three-toed sloths, sloths hanging out in trees, sloths in buckets and hammocks, interesting information about sloths and peace inducing quotes, I loved Life in the Sloth Lane. Sloths teach us many things, including: * Don't sweat the small stuff, or any stuff for that matter if you're a three-toed sloth and don't sweat at all. * The importance of rest. They rest about 70% of the day. Now that's the life! My favourite quote of the book is by Chade-Meng Tan: “Because inner peace and inner joy are independent of worldly circumstances, they are available to you anyplace and anytime.” This would make a lovely gift book or coffee table book. Anyone who needs a smile should enjoy plenty while reading this book. I was ready to reach through the pages, pull out some sloths and give them all huge hugs, most likely while sitting in that super comfy looking hammock. Thank you so much to NetGalley and Workman Publishing Company for the opportunity to read this book.
