Description

 

See below for English description.

Un beau matin, un paresseux victime d’une erreur administrative se retrouve au Zooum! Il s’attendait à se la couler douce au zzzzzoo, un endroit plutôt tranquille... sauf qu’au Zooum, les zèbres galopent si vite qu’ils laissent leurs rayures dans leur sillage. Les singes grimpent si vite qu’ils oublient de s’arrêter à la cime des arbres. Et les perroquets volent si vite qu’ils dessinent des arcsen-ciel dans les airs! Chaque fois que le paresseux essaie de se faire des amis, les autres animaux sont toujours trop pressés! Mais lorsqu’il trouve enfin un camarade qui vit à son rythme, leur nouvelle amitié pique la curiosité des autres créatures… Cet album remarquable, à la fois drôle et surprenant, traite de l’importance de ralentir le rythme pour apprécier les petites choses de la vie et celles qui nous tiennent à cœur.

Ce présentoir comprend 6 exemplaires de Un paresseux au Zooum.

 

One day, a sloth accidentally gets delivered to the Zoom! She was supposed to be dropped off at the Zzzzzoo, a much more laid-back, slow-paced place. She had been looking forward to long, languorous naps while the sun gently warmed her belly. But at the Zoom, the zebras gallop so fast they leave their stripes in puddles. The monkeys climb so fast they forget to stop at the treetops. And the parrots fly so fast their tails draw rainbows across the sky. When the sloth tries to make friends, nobody has any time — until the sloth meets a creature who’s a little more her speed, and everyone stops to notice. This is a surprising, delightful, and funny picture book about slowing down to enjoy the little things and making time for what matters.

This counterpack includes 6 copies of Un paresseux au Zooum.

Original title: Sloth at the Zoom
