Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Kids, you can't possibly imagine the level of cuteness at work in this book. Here's a visual: a baby sloth hugs a teddy bear, and he's smaller than the bear. There are sloths in pjs, sloths gnawing on green beans, and even a pile o' sloths in a bucket. Of course, in addition to the huggable pictures and handsome book design, there's a story here too. Cooke, photographer, zoologist, and founder of the Sloth Appreciation Society, introduces a rehabilitation sanctuary in a sleepy corner of Costa Rica, home to approximately 150 slow-moving residents. Judy Arroyo is mom to each of these creatures, from Buttercup, the first tiny orphan that landed on her doorstep, to Sunshine and Sammy, rescued from poachers. Cooke points out in her lively text that there are two families of sloth: the three-fingered Bradypus and the two-fingered Choloepus ( a cross between a Wookie and a pig ). Fascinating facts about sloths abound. Move over puppies, kittens, and piglets kids are going to have a new favorite animal when they get their hands on this, especially given the unofficial sloth motto: Just chill. --Kelley, Ann Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Cooke, whose YouTube videos and 2011 Animal Planet documentary, Too Cute! Baby Sloths, set off a minor sloth-loving craze, offers an encyclopedic look at these permanently smiling, adorably snub-nosed "masters of mellow" by way of a photo-tour of their now famous sanctuary in Costa Rica. There are sloths in pajamas (which are actually necessary because they can't control their body temperature), sloths in a "cuddle puddle," sloths hugging stuffed animals, sloths gazing into the camera with small but trusting eyes (even when they're upside down)-all proof that life in the fast lane is vastly overrated (it probably helps that these sloths aren't covered in algae and insects, as they are in the wild). An Oxford-trained zoologist, photographer, and documentarian, Cooke writes with a firm sense of authority and a loving irreverence ("Since their top speed is fifteen feet a minute, running from danger is simply not an option"; "Baby sloths are Jedi masters of the hug") that lifts these pages far above most real-life animal books and should make the inevitable umpteenth readaloud easy to bear. Ages 5-up. (Mar.)? (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
