Baby Sloth lives up in the trees with Mama Sloth, where he sleeps between Mama and the moon. But when Baby Sloth falls out of the tree, Mama Sloth talks him down (metaphorically) while she climbs down (physically) to get him. Sweetly slow-paced and adorable, it's the end note that makes this book even better: "On average, a sloth will fall out of a tree once a week for its entire life. But don't worry, it's a normal part of how they live!" A new sloth fact for me!
