This book is also great fun. Don’t try to read it when you’re
tired, or the delightful pictures of lazy sloths will soothe you right
This is the story of a school for sloths. The sloths don’t work
hard, to put it mildly. They do a little synchronized yawning, take
three hours for lunch, and then take their afternoon nap. When Sparky,
an energetic sloth comes to school, she is not appreciated at all.
Then, however, a school inspector comes, ready to shut the school
down because of their lack of learning. How Sparky makes the sleepy
sloths appear to be hard workers is clever and funny. This book
is absolutely a delight.
