Have you been rushing around? Today is International Sloth Day, the perfect time to slow down. And here are a few books to help you do just that. How beautiful are the covers?
Sloths are rainforest tree-dwellers. They sleep for around 15-20 hours each day and forage slowly during non-napping hours. I haven’t read these sloth books but my local library has a few of them and I’m heading there today to see how these authors and illustrators have played around with themes of sleepiness and busyness.
Here are some links to find out more: But First we Nap, The Sloth Who Came to Stay, Sloth at the Zoom, “Slowly, slowly, slowly,” said the Sloth, Sparky, The Lazy Friend.
