‘The rising star of natural history…is she the new David Attenborough?’
Explores and explodes our biggest myths and misconceptions about animals from Aristotle to Disney. After reading, you’ll hopefully never think about hyenas, penguins or pandas in quite the same way again.
Combining the irresistible cuteness of sloths with words of wisdom about slowing down, Life in the Sloth Lane is a mindfulness book like no other. On spread after spread we see heart-tugging, full-color images of sloths—grown-ups and babies, both two-toed and three-toed, draped in trees, lying on hammocks, eating, hugging, nuzzling, playing—paired with inspiration on the joy of living slow, including quotes from Thoreau and Emily Dickinson, Paulo Coehlo and Elizabeth Gilbert.
Life in the Sloth Lane is the perfect gift for anyone who wants to step out of the fast lane. Or—hint, hint—needs to.
Cozy up with adorable baby sloths in this irresistible photographic picture book. Hang around just like a sloth and get to know the delightful residents of the Avarios Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica, the world’s largest sloth orphanage.

Slothville - Official Headquarters of the Sloth Appreciation Society
As the home of the SLOTH APPRECIATION SOCIETY, Slothville is the place to slow down, chill out and celebrate one of nature’s most remarkable creatures: the sloth.
We humans could learn a thing or two from them – when you’re feeling overwhelmed by your to-do list, let these sweet, sleepy mammals remind you to take a moment to slow down and smell the flowers.
If you love sloths then please join this slow movement by signing up to join the Sloth Appreciation Society here at Slothville. You will receive your very own Sloth Appreciation Society certificate and poster so you can start spreading the sloth love immediately.
