A sloth lives at a zoo. The zoo is in London. His mother cannot feed him. She has no milk. People must feed the sloth.

He is seven weeks old. When he gets big, he will have claws. The claws will be 10 centimetres long. Thanks to these claws, sloths can move in the trees.

People give the little sloth a name. They call him Edward.

Sloths are active at night. They are from South America.

Difficult words: sloth (the animal in the picture), feed (to give food), claw (a long nail on an animal).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
