Everybody loves Samson. He is a kind and considerate sloth who is always available for a chat or to give a helping hand. As a result he has many friends and gets lots of exciting party invitations. There’s only one problem – Samson is very, very slow.
On party days he always leaves home on time, but his slow movements and his kindly nature mean he is always late. In fact, he usually arrives after the party has ended which always makes him very sad.
His friends love him dearly and recognise that Samson is never late through any fault of his own. He just can’t move fast enough, and if he sees someone in need along the way he simply has to stop and help because that’s his nature.
Today we visited the zoo with Ivy for the first time and she loved seeing all of the animals. In the gift shop I let her pick a book for her collection and she chose this lovely one about a sloth.
Three little children are playing in their garden when they discover a strange animal sleeping in the tree. What on earth is it and where did it come from?
They try asking grown ups but they’re too busy. They look in their books but they can’t find any animals that look like him. They use their imaginations and wonder if he came from space or if he’s a hairy pirate or a brave knight.
Will they ever find out what he is and where he comes from? And if they do, how will they get him home?
The illustrations are gorgeous and the book features lots of interesting facts about sloths for your little ones to learn!
