" Slowly Slowly Slowly, said the Sloth" by Eric Carle.

Hi guys,
Let´s meet Sloth, an animal that lives in the rainforest with pumas, bats, monkeys and many more animals. Sloth's fellow creatures can’t understand why he is so quiet, so slow and so lazy:"Why are you so slow?", "Why are you so quiet?", "Why are you so lazy? ". Eventually, after many inquisitions Sloth replies with dazzling lyricism and elegance.
This book is a wonderful introduction to the rainforest and explores the benefits of taking time out to live life slowly, slowly, slowly. Carle’s illustrations of the rainforest are awesome . His illustrations, which fill each page, are done in a painted tissue-paper collage. The colors are bright and saturated, exactly how one imagines the rain forest must look.
