Behind the Book: Mindful Mr. Sloth

20 September 2021

A worldwide pandemic is one, uncommon, way to slow down a fast-paced life. The phantom need to get from point A to point B in a rush was stripped away just over a year ago, and we were left with the reality that we need to remember to slow down. In an effort to encourage mindfulness, Bright Artist Katy Hudson author-illustrated the lovely book Mindful Mr. Sloth (Capstone). A young girl named Sasha is always rushing through life, until she learns a lesson or two from her new friend, Mr. Sloth. Through an unlikely friendship Hudson reminds us to enjoy the small joys in life, and how our loved ones can help us succeed in doing so. Please enjoy learning more about what into the making of this book!
