One night at bedtime, Sloth wasn't sleepy.
"What if I worry when I try to fall asleep?" Sloth said.
"Ah . . . worries," Mama said. "We will have to let them go."

A stressful day, a bad dream, a scary movie . . . these are just a few things that can keep kids wide awake and frightened after dark. But Mama Sloth knows the secret for calming worried minds - and as she shares them with her daughter, young readers will learn valuable relaxation skills that last a lifetime.

Sloth Wasn't Sleepy does more than provide a sweet bedtime story - kids will join Sloth to learn mindfulness practices such as "shrinking down" fears in their mind and calming their body through breath and simple visualisations.
