I wanted to hold a baby sloth in the worst way as I read this adorable book. Lucy Cooke writes about a sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica. Not only does she give interesting information about sloths, but she introduces the reader to individual sloths and makes you fall in love with them. Her writing is funny and entertaining and her compassion for sloths really shines through her narration. The illustrations are heartbreakingly adorable. Kids will absolutely love it! Read it, if not for the information, then for the cuteness.
Here is a link to the sanctuary's website.
