Such an adorable book and the pictures are superb . Who knew that sloths could be so darn cute ! A book the whole family could enjoy ... and learn from.

I checked this out for my sister, but almost everyone in our family read it and liked it. The book is written very humorously and the pictures are way too cute. We were particularly charmed by the pictures of Mateo and Moo. :)

Adorable baby sloths doing adorable sloth things!

Is there anything cuter than baby sloths in pyjamas? Or a great big cuddle puddle of sloths? Fans of all things furry and adorable will find it difficult to choose a favourite page in this photographic tour of a Costa Rican sloth sanctuary. While older kids will appreciate the breezy, jokey text (“baby sloths are Jedi masters of the hug") and fascinating facts, the whole family will “awwwww” in unison at the plentiful colour photos of these lovable, lackadaisical animals.

I love this book! It's ridiculously cute. It's also a solid work of non-fiction, all about sloths and a sancuary that rescues them. Heartwarming in every way.

Such a charming book! It makes me happy every time I look at it. Plus, I learned all these cool facts about sloths (did you know that there is a moth that only exists in the fur of wild sloths?). I bet kids would love it too.
