In a world that tries to pigeon hole children with standardized testing, The Very Sleepy Sloth by Andrew Murray and Jack Tickle shows that each of us has different abilities.
All the animals are awake and busy doing what they do best when they notice that sloth is lazily snoozing. They tell him to get up and do something. He challenges each of them to do something another animal is good at, and each of them fail. He explains that all of them, including himself are doing what they do best.
This book shows the importance of not comparing our weakness to another's strengths. We all have areas where we can shine. Helping children find their strengths builds self esteem.
Read to a child today even if that child you.
