I kind of liked that this story featured sloths--what a unique choice of animal to center a story around. I really enjoyed reading the slow, lazy, sloth-y parts to the kids, and I just loved the pictures of these creatures draped about. I imagine that my niece probably identified with Sparky. From the moment her eyes open in the morning she's up and ready to go. Unfortunately, like Sparky, she's surrounded by those who are probably not ever going to be considered "movers and shakers." This was just a cute, fun little story.
