ABOUT SLUMBER SLOTH
Shy and soft-spoken Slumber Sloth struggles with insomnia, which leaves him feeling slow and lethargic during the day. It can be really hard for him to stay awake when he’s hanging out with his friends. Sometimes he even falls asleep in the middle of a conversation and begins dreaming about what he was going to say instead of actually saying it. Sloth doesn’t like that others expect him to act this way.
Sloth wishes he could get better sleep at night, and his mom wants to help him do the same. She did some research and discovered that progressive muscle relaxation can help Sloth fall asleep without the use of medicine. As a single mother, Sloth’s mom is very busy taking care of her three kids. Sloth has two younger siblings. Because they are little, they often get more attention than him.
