Mervin the Sloth Is About To Do the Best Thing In the World written by Colleen Venable, illustrated by Ruth Chan. What? Giant falling letters? A bold announcement? “Mervin the sloth is about to do the best thing in the world.” So cool! But what IS the Best Thing in the World? Animal friends from far and near begin arriving and try to guess what the Best Thing might be. Surely flying is the Best Thing? Maybe digging? Or time travel? But Mervin is a sloth, and sloths move S—L—O—W—L—Y. So slowly that the animals just can’t figure out Mervin’s plan. As they watch and debate, page by page, they begin to lose interest and wander away, all but the little red panda that has been there from the start. “Come back, you’re going to miss it!” the excited panda cries. The animals hurry back just in time to see… the Best Thing in the World! Watch each page for Mervin’s tiny movements and see if you can guess what he will do! See this book listed in our catalog
