“Slowly Slowly Slowly Said the Sloth” is the best sloth picture book I own. If there is one I recommend it’s this one! Eric Carle is a great children’s author.

My first sloth book, Sleepyhead Sloth! Such a cute little picture book! Get it here.
There’s sloth and sled and slush and sleek. There’s slug and slide and slap and sleep.There’s slip and slope and slug and sly. There’s slice and slow and slink, oh my!
David Attenborough is one of my heroes. I’ve always loved his work, his voice, his mannerisms, his wonderful way of looking at life. I was given his autobiography, “Life Stories” (hardcover or audiobook), as a present and was delighted to find that his first chapter was dedicated to his favourite animal, the sloth.

Sometimes I got my majors mixed up.
