"Slowly, Slowly, Slowly," Said the Sloth

$7.99
More Info
Slowly, slowly, slowly . . . that's the way the sloth moves. Slowly, it eats and then, slowly, it falls asleep. What strange kind of creature is this? the other animals wonder. Why doesn't it run or fly or play or hunt like the rest of us? Why are you so slow? the howler monkey inquires. But the sloth doesn't answer any questions until the jaguar asks, Why are you so lazy?

Anyone who has ever felt too busy will appreciate the sloth's peaceful lifestyle and realize that it's okay to take time to enjoy life. Eric Carle' s dazzling collage illustrations introduce readers to the exotic beauty of the Amazon rain forest and the many unusual animals living there.

"A picture book filled with giggles." --Publishers Weekly

All the animals are in a panic. The elephant's sneeze would blow the monkeys out of the trees, the feathers off the birds, the stripes off the zebra! Even the fish and the fly, the crocodile and the kangaroo know what a catastrophe that sneeze would be. Please don't sneeze! they beg....

This classic story of an enormous sneeze in the marking, told in sprightly nonsense verse, is fun to share with a child at home or as a read-aloud at school. It's sure to make even wriggling little ones pay attention and join in!
