sloths has grown. The furry creature found in the Rainforest has fascinated my husband for a long time. Recently we picked up a copy of Eric Carle's book, "Slowly, Slowly, Slowly," said the Sloth that revealed interesting facts about them. Sloths sleep more than cats do, up to nineteen hours a day and they spend most of their lives hanging upside down. They're considered the slowest moving mammal and enjoy a peaceful life feeding off leaves and fruit. In Carle's book, the sloth reminds us that moving at a slower pace is actually a more peaceful way to live. In every photo I've seen of sloths, they're smiling. It's sad to think that both the two and three-toed sloths of South America are endangered as the rainforests continue to be destroyed.
