The Slowest Book Ever
April Pulley Sayre, Kelly Murphy
(Boyds Mills Press, April 5, 2016)
"This is a S-L-O-W book. Do not read it while surfing, water skiing, or running to escape giant weasels..."April Pulley Sayre's wry, quirky storytelling tone shines from the warning on the first page right through to the glossary at the end. In between, readers will explore an astounding variety of information about all things slow—in nature, geology, art, outer space, etc. Throughout, The SLOWEST Book EVER playfully encourages readers to slow down and savor everything. As Sayre shows: "If you think slowly enough, the entire world is amazing." This innovative nonfiction work is a treasure trove of information that begs for multiple readings.
