My daughter (5) loves this book for herself!
Chasity Renea Morris
They enjoyed being able to do the poses on their own because the words and pictures are easy for them to understand and follow.

Format: Hardcover
This is a lovely book for introducing young children (3-8 or so) to yoga poses, and for reinforcing their ABCs too. For each letter of the alphabet, one or more poses are offered, along with a rhymed verse describing each pose, and an adorable illustration of a child doing the position. Some of the poses are presented using the usual English translation of their name, such a Cobra under the letter 'C' or Downward Dog under 'D', while others are renamed to fit in the alphabet theme, like Dinosaur, Flower, or Flamingo. Both the pictures and rhymes are really cute. My kids, ages 4-6, like to do each pose in this book in sequence. However, they also like to just have me read the book, while they look at the illustrations.

Overall, I think this is a great book to get for your own kids, or as a gift for others.

My kids had so much fun reading the book and doing the poses. They enjoyed being able to do the poses on their own because the words and pictures are easy for them to understand and follow. When they were done reading the book and doing all the poses they really felt proud of themselves. A great book!!

True to yoga's philosophy of the unity of life, yoga's physical practice of bringing the body into balance and lot's of fun for kids. We especially enjoyed the Namaste song.

Format: Hardcover
This book is fantastic. It is clear and to the point. Each letter has a pose or two, either because it looks like the letter but mostly because the name of the pose starts with that letter. The kids (4 and 6) have loved it! Good drawings and each pose has a little saying/poem to describe how to do the pose but you don't really need that you can just look at the drawing. I bought one for my kids and just bought another for a friend's child' birthday.

I love this book, I have used it for work (as a pediatric occupational therapist) and at home for my own children. A great way for kids to move and learn the ABC's.

The book is a great way to teach kids their ABCs. Unfortunately, it's not a yoga book. Many of the poses are made up or incorrect. And even when they are correct, they aren't done correctly. Here is the list:

Airplane - This pose is really called Downward-facing Boat Pose. There weren't any airplanes when this pose was named.
Alligator - This pose is really called Crocodile Pose.
Bird - no such pose.
Boat - name is correct.
Bridge - name is correct.
Butterfly - name is correct.
Candle - Wrong pose for Candle. Candle Pose is a gymnastics pose that is very similar to Shoulder Stand.
Cat - is Tiger Pose. Wrong pose for Cat. Cat Pose is the second pose shown as Cow Pose in this book.
Chair - name is correct.
Cobra - name is correct.
Cow - only the first pose is Cow Pose. The second one is Cat Pose.
Dinosaur - This pose is really called Half-way Up or Monkey Pose.
Dog - is really Downward-facing Dog Pose. There is also an Upward-facing Dog Pose.
Do Nothing Pose - is really Corpse or Dead Man's Pose.
Easy Pose - name is correct.
Elephant - no such pose.
Fish - name is correct.
Flamingo - no such pose.
Flower - no such pose.
Frog - wrong pose. There is already is a Frog pose. This is not it.
Gate - name is correct.
Grasshopper - This is Easy Cobra. There is a Locust Pose in yoga. This is not it.
Happy Baby - name is correct.
Inhale - not a pose.
Jack-in-the-Box - no such pose.

This book is wonderful! My 4 year old and I read all the time together, but as of now, he rarely takes a book out by himself. Except for this one. I'll catch him taking this book off the shelf by himself, opening it up and doing stretches/poses for about 20 minutes at a time. He's even started to create his own poses. Thank you!
