Take it... Sloth!
Activities to Learn Patience and Slowing Down
By Chiara Piroddi (Author), Federica Nuccio (Illustrator), Roberta Vottero (Illustrator)
Throughout the book, children will be guided by the kindest, sweetest, calmest sloth in all the jungle: Quick! Intrigued and perhaps even a little annoyed by all the noise he hears and sees day after day in the jungle, as he hangs upside down from a branch, Quick has decided to descend from his cacao tree. As he heads to a new plant, one slow step at a time, he meets plenty of hurried, bumbling, impatient friends. Join him on this adventure and discover how he reacts. He will teach his fellow animals how to appreciate the virtues of calmness and reflection, to follow his motto "Take it . . . sloth!"
