Product description


"We all loved this book... the reason we liked it the most was, as Phoenix put it, "Sloths are just cool."" (Andrew Kaufman Globe and Mail 2015-09-04)

"A startlingly informative alternative to the run-of-the-mill potty book." (Kirkus 2015-06-16)

"A nice choice to introduce young listeners to the rainforest and celebrate independence." (School Library Journal)

"Kyle Goes Alone will be an appreciated and well-used addition to a school library collection. Highly recommended." (Canadian Review of Materials)

"Simple and heartwarming...highly recommended." (Midwest Book Review)

"[A] triumph of storytelling, blending scientific non-fiction, collage artistry and sloth-pooping." (CanLit for Little Canadians)

"Thornhill uses gentle humour and a relatable storyline to teach kids about responsibility and overcoming their fears, but the real stars of the book are Ashley Barron's gorgeous paper collage illustrations, which elevate a simple story to a thing of beauty." (Quill & Quire)

"A mix of science and story." (Resource Links)

"Stunningly illustrated...this sweet story would be a wonderful addition to the elementary school library...it could be utilized in conjunction with habitat study, a lesson in friendship and encouragement, or simply read for enjoyment. Highly recommended." (School Library Connection)

"In warm, colorful cut-paper collage, the story takes a creative approach to easing children into potty training and other firsts, with the support of loved ones along the way." (Booklist)
