Book Description

10 April 2014 One Shot
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, along with the ZSL EDGE programme to protect the pygmy sloth, receives some of the proceeds from this book. This book has been a huge success in the USA, where is was published under the title of The Little Book of Sloth, selling over 50,000 copies and making the New York Times best-seller list.

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.

I have always loved sloths and having seen the TV programme that goes alongside this book, I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy.

By Bridget
I have a copy of this book and I highly recommend it for for young and old.The Grandchildren all love it as the English is so well written and the pictures very easy on the eye.It teaches you about sloths and encourages to do follow up reading if you are interested in unusual animals.
