Is there a reason sloths are always smiling? Yes They've mastered the art of living slow in a world whose pace is making everyone crazy. Along with being the "it" animal--"sloths are the new kittens" (Washington Post)--the sloth clearly has much to teach us about how to live.
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.
Written by Lucy Cooke, author of the sellout Sloths calendar and the "Steven Spielberg of sloth filmmaking" (The Atlantic), 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.
