Slow Down, Stanley

by Elena Levi, Giulia Pastorino
Fabulous art and a lovely story make this a standout picture book that celebrates differences and being oneself!

Sloths are known for being slow, but not Stanley—he’s always rushing from one thing to the next, driven on by adventure and curiosity. He’s different from the other sloths, and happy to be so—though his dad worries. One day, when there is a fire in the forest, Stanley’s speed helps to save the sloths, and he is finally accepted for who he is.
“Stanley’s antics will encourage younger readers to do what they like best and not worry about everyone else.”—School Library Journal -
