Importance of Family
Amy's family rushes for everything. "They walked fast, drove fast, shopped fast, and ate fast." This upsets Amy because there isn't any time for laughter or fun. When Amy finds a sloth hanging from a tree in the park, she never expected the impact he'd have on her family.
Sloth did everything very, very slow. While Amy's family rushes, sloth still moves slow. For that reason, they have to wait for him. Eventually, the family begins to slow their activities and Amy is full of joy from it.
THE SLOTH WHO SLOWED US DOWN is an adorable story that teaches about the importance of enjoying your life instead of speeding through it. It's important to slow down and enjoy the little things. Sloth teaches Amy's family this and I love it! Sloths are known to be slow so it is very well done by the author.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of animals, especially sloths. It's also a good story to teach the importance of family.
