Book Description

The Power of Sloth is Lucy Cooke's celebration of the sloth: the cutest, cuddliest, slowest creature on this planet. In the book she brings together some truly adorable pictures of baby sloths, literally by the bucketful. These delightful, funny pictures are accompanied by a simple text which tells you all about sloths and why we should protect them. We also discover all about the work of the Avarios sloth sanctuary, which receives some of the proceeds from this book. This book has been a huge success in the USA, selling over 50,000 copies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware the power of Sloth 19 May 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Your child may never be the same again. I know. Because my daughter has changed. Often at bedtimes, she is now 'Matteo' and I am her 'keeper'. I have to draw sloths that she will colour in. And we're fast running out of sloth clips to watch on YouTube. It's fair to say my five and half year old knows each sloth in the book by name, and so is also able to identify them in movies around the Internet. She continues to 'aw' and 'oh' and 'cute' at the sight of even the ugliest specimens, which I genuinely feel is helping her develop an appreciation of the underdog and increase her capacity for empathy. Despite the bizarre spectacle of watching your offspring crawl around at a rate of 3-6 ft per second, there are benefits. For example, I get particularly good cuddles now. Dads, if you're not getting the hugs you think you deserve, you need to buy this book. Although if your kid starts eating leaves and only climbing down from trees once a week to poo, then you may like to send it back.
