OH MY GOODNESS. You cannot begin to comprehend the level of cuteness coming off of every page. I thought I would just take a glance through, but No--I had to actually check it out from the library and take it home. Just impossible not to love, and this is one of those books that will make your kids want to read every word, and then read it again and again. ( )

Sloths are delightful, (or the furriest residents of the Uncanny Valley,) but this book was a little too over-the-top. It's a bit like if icanhazcheezburger suddently tried to be educational. Just when I think I've learned something, they go and throw out that sloths are "the absolute masters of mellow." Oh, well. The pictures were fun! ( )

I truly enjoyed reading the book a little book of SLOTH because I’ve always adored sloths but didn’t know much about them. This adorable book walks you through a sanctuary for sloths and introduces you to the sloths who live there. Every sloth has unique characteristics that make them different from the other sloths. These sloths have been rescued and are being nursed back to health before going back into the wild. The reason I love this book so much is because it allows you to connect and get to know the different sloths. Cooke states, “Work it, Wally! Wally is a hard-working young sloth, dedicated to self-improvement. He has finally learned how to climb up. But he’s yet to master the art of reverse and often has to be rescued from the top” (Cooke, page 32). On this page includes a picture of Wally at the top of a jungle gym looking proud of himself. While Cooke introduces all the different sloths who live in the sanctuary, she is giving facts about sloths which I never knew of. In order to tell sloths a part, different types of sloths have a varying amount of fingers. While I knew that sloths love to chill, they actually spend 70% of their time sleeping. Sloths nerves have been evolved to not react to loud noises. These are some of the fascinating facts about sloths which I never knew of. Throughout this book, the author does an amazing job with the pictures. The pictures are able to capture the sloths doing many of their different activities. You’re able to visually see the different traits, hobbies, and relationships they have with one another. The purpose of this book was for Cooke to show readers what a sloth sanctuary looks like, and give information about sloths. Each book that is bought donates to the Aviarios sloth sanctuary. ( )

The pictures of sloths are cute. I was not a fan of the language and there was not a very clear presentation of facts. This is NOT a stellar work of nonfiction (there isn't a single reference). More of a "hey look these animals are cute" type of book. I would have prefered a better presentation of facts along with the adorable pictures. ( )

This book is composed of a lot of different brief anecdotes and fun facts about sloths, however I don't feel that this book would be well used in a classroom. From a literacy teaching standpoint, it's not the most high quality text to make use of. ( )
