Say hello to a sloth, and learn all about this incredible endangered species—and why they need protecting—in this clever, funny, and informative nonfiction picture book, illustrated by a Caldecott Honoree.

“Wild, fun, and truly eye-opening, Meet the Wild Things gets us up close and personal with some of the world's most amazing creatures. With this series, Hayley and John Rocco are doing more than entertaining our kids—they’re inspiring them to care about the future of our planet.” —Brad Meltzer, bestselling author of the Ordinary People Change the World series

Did you know sloths only poop once a week?

Or that they can fall up to 100 feet without getting hurt?

They have hundreds of bugs living on them, including a species of moths that only lives on sloths!

And they move so slowly that algae grows on their fur, which—far from being gross—can actually help sloths by camouflaging them from predators.

Chock-full of amazing, kid-friendly facts and inviting artwork from the #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator of Blackout, the Meet the Wild Things series introduces young readers to endangered animals from around the globe, told from the points of view of the animals themselves.
