This hilarious picture book is about a sloth on the go. A sloth who is . . . very slowly . . . making his way to a major milestone: potty training!

Today is Sloth's big day.
He's excited.
But he's also nervous.

What if something happens?
What if NOTHING happens?

Sloth Went
is a book about poop. But it's also an adventure story about facing your fears, gaining independence, and learning to do what you have to. Even if, as in Sloth's case, it takes a little while to get there.

Also included: back matter with the amazing true story of how sloths poop!
