“Large, humorous illustrations and a timely message in this present day of hectic activity make this a natural storytime choice.”

When the speediest family on the planet finds a sweet, slow sloth on their doorstep, they take him in. But, little do they know, their new pet has moderately a bit to teach them. For Amy’s family, there simply aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done. Mom rushes through her work. Dad rushes through his chores. Even little Amy rushes through dinner. But Sloth does things slowly. He likes to take long, leisurely baths with lots and loads of bubbles. He plays drawn-out, imaginative games. He eats his food slowly, enjoying one small bite at a time. After a couple of weeks of taking care of their new pet, Amy’s family finds that they in reality do have enough time to tell one another stories or go for long walks together after dinner—as long as they stop rushing around so much. The Sloth Who Slowed Us Down is a celebration of slowing down and remembering the important things in life.
