So basically these kids find a sloth and go through the processes of trying to identify what animal it is. Is it this animal? no, because it doesn't... etc. Eventually they discover it's a sloth and on that page there's an overload of facts about sloths. I like it, but it may be too much information on one page for a young child to focus on. Once the kids know what it is, they decide to mail it home to the rain forest, which is when we see a sign that says the sloth is lost from the zoo. The sloth arrives in the rain forest and asks the other animals how to get to the zoo (end)
So, there's a lot of good factual information, but I actually felt kind of sad about the ending personally. I have a feeling my nephew will think it's funny, but I feel bad for the sloth. I would have liked to see him make it home to the zoo.
Anyway, it's a fun book with great illustrations and a cute sloth theme. 4 stars out of 5 from me because everything but the ending is perfect.
Not the best writing but still cute. Illustrations are really cute and my 5 month old liked it.
