A sweet but slow-moving sloth gets a wonderful surprise from his friends in this illustrated picture book about taking your time and accepting yourself.
Everyone likes Samson the sloth! He is friendly and kind and always willing to lend a hand, so he gets lots of invitations to parties. But no matter how hard he tries, Samson moves too slowly to ever make it to the party: by the time he gets there, the cake is all eaten up and the games are finished. Can Samson’s clever friends figure out a way to celebrate their favorite sloth — and make sure he doesn’t miss a moment of it?
About the Author
Bethany Christou is a children’s book artist who loves to create stories with heart. Slow Samson is her author-illustrator debut. She lives in Hertfordshire, England.
Christou’s animals are friendly and appealing, with cartoony eyes that don’t match Samson’s lovely, loose-handed fur or the occasional pink background washes...plenty amiable.
