Destiny Finds Her Way is about a sloth in the tropical rainforest of Costa Rica. The sloth had fallen out of the tree and was rescued and brought to an animal rescue center where they fixed her up and tended to all of her needs. Due to how weak she was, they weren’t sure if they’d be able to return her to the wild or not. Destiny had an eye that was sick and she didn’t get her sight back. But the scientists helped prepare her for the wild anyway. But once they took her to the wild, she looked around with her good eye and took back off into her home!
This book also tells a lot about the other sights and sounds in the rainforest as well as has a lot of photos of other animals you might see around where Destiny lived as well.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
