The story tells us of a little girl named Sasha Patience whose middle name doesn't indicate her hyperactivity. She loves to begin multiple things at once without necessarily completing anything. But the day Mr. Sloth waddles into her life, it turns upside down.
The story is absolutely well-written. But more than the plot itself, I loved the book for its non-judgemental tone. It accepts that being fast and being slow both are needed at times. Thus no child in either category is pressured to join the other side.
The illustrations are melt-your-heart adorable! A worthy book for all early readers as it teaches them (and their parents) the valuable lesson of focussing on the present. As W.H. Davies said in his poem 'Leisure',
WHAT is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare?
I received a complimentary copy of this book at my request and these are my honest thoughts about it.
