Mindful Mr. Sloth by Katy Hudson reminded me of a cute updated play on the tortoise and the hare. Except Sasha isn’t competing against Mr. Sloth, she is competing against herself. Sasha is a super smart little girl who has tons of interests but wants to do everything at once and in a hurry. She is trying to take everything in, but at the rate she is moving it’s hard to see how she could really be enjoying any of it or appreciating it. With Mr. Sloth, Sasha is forced to slow down…and experience life. I’m excited to read this with my little ones as a reminder to literally slow down and smell the roses. The notes on mindfulness are very helpful and practical. 


I came for… The pretty little brown girl on the cover because I am always on the lookout for books with representation for children who are underrepresented.

I stayed for…the lesson in mindfulness, that I can actually apply to my own life. 

Hot Cocoa Moments: Sasha is my kind of girl! She has her TBR list in order! lol!

Would I Read it Again: Yes!

Educator Recommendations: Any educator, day care worker or parent could use this book with children as a reminder to slow down and appreciate the present moment. I plan to take my kids outside after reading this so that they can just sit and take in nature as they observe what is happening in front of them when they slow down and pay attention.
