A new title in the highly popular Beast Therapy series focusing on the exploration of human feelings through animal stories. We’ve met a walrus with a vulnerable personality, a blusterous tiger, and a foul-mouthed boar, and now it’s time to talk about sloths and different temperaments.
The Costa Rica tropics are buzzing with life: spoonbills are enjoying some yoga, crocodiles are racing in the water, while toucans are singing their hearts out. And amidst all this hustle and bustle there is a sloth. Compared to other animals, he is too slow and clumsy, and many simply don’t understand his ways of doing things. But when the fire breaks out in the forest, it’s the sloth’s calmness and thoughtfulness that helps the animals unite and save their home. After all, we are more alike than we are different. The story is accompanied by an informative spread with facts about sloths and their ecosystem.
