"Like other volumes in the Secret Life series, this book offers an engaging narrative that spotlights the daily life of an individual animal while including information that applies broadly to others of the species. Created with soft pastels, aqua crayons, and walnut ink, the beautifully textured, richly atmospheric illustrations capture events and reinforce information presented in the text. A fascinating introduction to the sloth." -- Booklist "Pringle pairs an intimate account of the life of a brown-throated three-fingered sloth to Garchinsky's impressionistic crayon-and-pastel close-ups of their subjects...Touching and informative: a beguiling invitation to share a branch with a pair of laid-back, uniquely adapted tree dwellers." --Kirkus Reviews
