Sloth at the Zoom
SLOTH AT THE ZOOM
Owl Kids books, English, 32 pages, 2018
Helaine Becker & Orbie
One day, a sloth accidentally gets delivered to the Zoom! She had been looking forward to long, languorous naps while the sun gently warmed her belly. But at the Zoom, the zebras gallop so fast they leave their stripes in puddles. The monkeys climb so fast they forget to stop at the treetops. And the parrots fly so fast their tails draw rainbows across the sky.
When the sloth tries to make friends, nobody has any time—until the sloth meets a creature who’s a little more her speed, and everyone stops to notice. This is a surprising, delightful, and funny picture book about slowing down to enjoy the little things and making time for what matters.
