    1. surprising facts about the life of a slow loris living with his friends in the zoo. the mexican sombrero pages are my favorite.



    2. I love Alexis Deacon, and Slow Loris is my favorite of his books. Slow Loris is slow, and others find him boring, but he is unconcerned, for Slow Loris has a secret life. Late at night, while everyone else sleeps, he indulges in his crazy passion for hats and ties and drumming on pans. Once the other animals in the zoo find out, they join in, but you get the feeling that Slow Loris wouldn't care if they disapproved. Yeah, he might have enjoyed the company that night, but even if they never party [...]


    3. I love Alexis Deacon's style! This is an imaginative and beautiful story with a message that is very true to my heart- Don't judge a book by its cover, and most importantly: It's okay to take your time over things! I was/am always being criticized for being slow! I recommend all of Deacon's own books and collaborations!


    4. Narrative structure:Slow Loris spends all day doing the bare minimum, from climbing and sleeping he is presented as a being boring by the fellow tourist visiting the zoo and by peers. However unbeknown to others apart from the reader, we know this is certainly not the case. Alexis’ commonly enjoys creating picture books which cover the theme of feeling an outsider and being different (see example, Beegus; croc and bird) from this book both themes are apparent. Language choice:The book is writt [...]


    5. Day in, day out, the unassuming Slow Loris spends most of his time being pointed at and stared at at the local Zoo. With only a limited amount of things to do, from climbing trees, to sleeping, the Slow Loris finds that he unwittingly gains the title of being ‘boring’. However, unbeknownst to the rest of his fellow animals and Zoo Kepers, this most certainly isn’t the case.Suitable for ages 3 and over, Slow Loris cleverly builds up the humour throughout the story. Alexis Deacon writes a co [...]


    6. Slow Loris is a slow loris. All the other animals at the zoo think Slow Loris is boring because he is very very slow.All the visitors to the zoo this Slow Loris is boring because his is very very slow.But Loris has a secretOne night the other animals at the zoo learn Loris' secret and discover he isn't quite as boring as they thought.One of my all-time favorite picture books! A short simple store paired with wonderful illustrations make this book perfect for picture book lovers of all ages.


    7. Slow Loris is a book about a Loris at a zoo that is called slow because he moves very slow, takes a long time to complete a task, and sleeps all day. However, the other animals quickly discover that Loris is slow because he is up all night doing wild and fun things. This book would be entertaining for children because of all the silly antics the animals at the zoo get into and would be a good way to discuss nocturnal animals with children.


    8. Slow Loris may be slow during the day, but that's just because at night he's a real party animal.Parents who aren't too keen on zoos will want to be aware that this book is set in one, and not a very modern one at that. Think the old "Plexiglass menagerie" in which the animal just sits in a barren concrete square with maybe one branch if he's lucky. Modern zoos have moved away from this design.


    9. I looked at this book with my year two class during reciprocal reading. it has great illustrations and a lovely moral at the end. children thoruoughly enjoyed looking at the pictures and making predications about why Slow Loris is slowwwwwwwa great book for reciprocal reading with small groups!!


    10. One of my all time favorite children's books. The illustrations are totally unique as is the story line. A slow loris (a kind of primate for those who don't know) lives at the zoo and everyone thinks he's the most boring animal there. But when the sun sets, this nocturnal primates puts on his party hat and lets loose. It's a cute book about a little know animal that is very dear to my heart.


    11. The story is a cute idea, but I didn't like the illustrations all that much or the layout. I din't find the text that intriquing either. I supposed it depends on what age group you were planning on using it with. However, there probably aren't that many fiction picture books about slow loris', so in that case it is pretty cool.


    12. This would be a great book to read to a class filled with animal loves. This is a very interesting and exciting book to read. This book explains what a Loris is and their way a life. It also shares the secret life of the Loris while in the zoo.


    13. The Loris is slow because he parties all nighton the other animals catch on and then all of them are slow. I feel like the slow loris.


    14. LorisssssssssssssSlow loris is the best animal in the world. He loves everything and he is very slow, except when he does things FAST <3


    15. Good use of lifting flaps and language. Really well put together. Maybe if we all work at it Slow Loris can be the new Bear?





    16. Love it for my slow storytime and to compare the illustrations with Slowly, Slowly, Slowly says the sloth by Eric Carle.
