We all love sloths, those cute critters hanging from rainforest trees. But did you know that their prehistoric ancestors grew as large as elephants, roamed as far north as Alaska, and swam in the ocean like sea lions? This beautifully illustrated book for young readers offers a deep dive into the worlds of these remarkable creatures, both present and past. It’s time to turn everything you thought about sloths…upside down!
