“Sloth at the Zoom” by Helaine Becker is a really cute book about animals and friendships. A sloth thought it was going to a “zzzzzoo”, where it would be relaxing, but it actually went to a “zoom”, where all the animals move very fast. It was difficult to make friends at first, because no one had any time. When the sloth makes friends with a snail, suddenly everyone else notices. In the end, the animals become friends even though they are very different, because they took the time to get to know each other. The illustrations, by Orbie, are beautiful, detailed, and complement the story perfectly.
