Sloth at the Zoom

Sloth at the Zoom by Helaine Becker is a treasure. Sloth is delivered to the zoo, expecting to have a relaxing time. However, life at the zoo is high speed, with zebras galloping and monkeys swinging. Sloth is a bit flummoxed by all the zooming around and kind of lonely but after a while finds a sympathetic companion in Snail and they have a lovely picnic. The other animals pause to enjoy the feast and everyone becomes--you guessed it--“fast” friends.
