Sam, the Speedy Sloth, is a super illustrated children's book. I loved it.

Sam is a sloth, but not a typical one. He likes to race around and is the fastest sloth in the forest. In this story, he challenges several different animals to race with him. I love this sloth. He is super cute and determined.

This storybook is an ideal stocking filler for Christmas if you are still looking for presents. The author has cleverly rhymed the words, so the story flows off the tongue as one reads i

What a fun little story! Sam the Speedy Sloth ventures out into the world and learns that while he may not be the fastest animal in the jungle, he is special and should feel confident about his style! I like how the author chooses some unique rhymes, rather than more simple three or four letter words. This makes the story more enjoyable for parents, though some children may not be able to comprehend the vocabulary. The story is fun and the drawings are charming.

A lovely book and gorgeous pictures

My 6 year old loved reading this book. The rhyming sentences are beautifully written and the images are lovely with a lot of detail. We spent quite a bit of time looking at the pictures on each page.

The little extras like word search and spot the difference were very welcome as well and we found out more info about all the animals.

As mum, I really liked the morale of the story that everyone is unique and you don’t always have to compare to everyon

I love how a very uncommon animal was the star of this book! Sam is very confident but learns a valuable lesson in the end that will be easily recognized by kids. The colors are really bright and appealing to young readers plus the rhyming words make everything fun to their relatively short attention spans. Congratulations to the author and hoping for more Sam adventures to come!

Good job Sam!

Light, easy to read with clear big pictures and beautiful rhtymic rhymes. I wish the writer will turn it into a series. Sam the speedy Sloth, maybe next could be the tortoises or snails or one of the characters already in the book!

I'm so not in the age-group this book is for, but I loved the cover and the rhythm-storytelling is so cute and pleasing :-) The fact there is more than just a story, but nice games at the end of the book is a great bonus :-O Every page is eye-candy! Definitely a great book for every child.

Fun to read to children. The extra find the fruit activity is fun for toddlers. The other activities are for older young children. Loved the rhyming format and illustrations.
