Description


This hilarious picture book is about a sloth on the go. A sloth who is . . . very slowly . . . making his way to a major milestone: potty training!

Today is Sloth's big day.
He's excited.
But he's also nervous.

What if something happens?
What if NOTHING happens?

Sloth Went
is a book about poop. But it's also an adventure story about facing your fears, gaining independence, and learning to do what you have to. Even if, as in Sloth's case, it takes a little while to get there.

Also included: back matter with the amazing true story of how sloths poop!

Praise For…


“Comic gold. . . . Younger children inspired by Sloth's courage and independent spirit may likewise be drawn to dance along after their own successful (e)missions.” —Booklist, starred review

“Extremely endearing.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Good humored but never at the expense of empathy. Families facing similar toilet trepidation will find plenty of sympathy and wisdom in these pages.” —Publishers Weekly
