“The photos alone in this nonfiction book about Slothville, a sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica, are almost too cute to take, but add a narrative that includes phrases like 'cuddle puddle,' and the cuteness overflows! Kids will love this adorable and educational book filled with information about sloths and the important work being done to protect the species.”
— Jeanne Ryan, Dragonwings Bookstore, Waupaca, WI
