Here is a statement from Emme:
"In school I learned about sloths and how they're facing extinction, so I began to pray for them in my nightly prayers," she said in a statement. "I wrote this book to help raise money to save sloths while also teaching other children how we can pray and ask for help — two things that bring me a lot of comfort."
Here is a statement from the vice president/publisher of Crown Books for Young Readers:
"When we met for the first time, I was so inspired by [Emme's] heartfelt desire to share the positivity and sense of calm that daily prayer brought to her life with other children and their families."
