The Secret Sloth

We rated this book:


The Secret Sloth is a story about this wondrous, slow-moving creature. Written in rhyme, with some facts tossed in, children can learn about the habitat above the Rainforest floor. People usually think of the Sloth living way up high in the treetops, but what most don’t know is that the Sloth is also a swimmer. The story also tells of the Sloth’s many enemies that they need to watch out for. Facts about how the rainforest is in danger of disappearing are also presented in the book.

An honorable effort by author Kellie Holsey in not only raising awareness about the Sloth, but also the importance the Rainforest plays in the Earth’s atmospheric well-being. The illustrations throughout the book are quite elementary, which might not necessarily be a bad thing. Tighter editing of the book would increase the readability, as there are a few punctuation errors.

With a great heart, soul, and intention behind the book, it’s sure to enlighten any young reader into the life of the Sloth. Portions of book sale proceeds goes to Kids Saving the Rainforest. More information on that program can be found at
