This funny, charming story is the perfect way to introduce young children to the idea of being involved and the importance of helping others and being responsible. Also included are suggestions for activities and ideas to talk through together to help children understand their behaviour. Sloth is very lazy. He just can't be bothered to clean up after himself or help out at home. At school, he is too lazy to take care with his work or join in with games. Can Sloth learn that helping others and being busy can be fun? The BEHAVIOUR MATTERS series of picture books provide a gentle means of discussing emotions, boosting self-esteem and reinforcing good behaviour. Suitable for children under 5.
