Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 7-From the full-color cover, to the many interior glossy photographs of children in various yoga positions, this book is appealing to the eye. It is also full of educational recreational activities that combine two things children love-animals and movement. Younger children will especially enjoy imitating the positions and shapes of the various animals, plants, and objects that appear in the large photographs throughout the volume. Beginning with the easiest exercises and progressing to the more difficult, the instructions and descriptions are brief but clear. The physical benefits of the poses are stated and the few positions not recommended for children under six are noted. Various ethnic groups and boys and girls are shown practicing. Both children and adults will appreciate this treasure. Luby makes exercising seem like fun.

This is a fabulous book visually; with large color photos of the animal/object and children in the pose. It is also full of new information and poses created by the author. It won a national award for one of the best children's books of 1998 from the School Library Journal. I highly recommend it!!

This book is *truly* worthwhile. I took it out from the library (along with a number of other children's yoga books) and found it superior to the rest.
It contains very clear pictures of an object/animal on one page, alonng with a brief comment/question to ask a child, and the other has a child in a similar pose, wearing similar coloured clothing.
There is also suggestions for yoga poses for various aliments, headache, etc.
I am on a *tight* budget, but ordered this book after my first reading of it. What better recommendation do you need?
Buy this book, and everyone at work will think you are cool.

This book is now available. It is a beautiful book with color photos throughout and new poses and games to play. Many poses were created by the author. Children ages 3-12 will enjoy learning new poses from this book. There is also information for teachers and parents.

I bought a whole slew of yoga for kids books and this is by far the best one. All of the others repeat the information from this book, but in a less clear way and without the great pictures. This is the one to get.

A beautifully illustrated book. Accurate and colorful. My class of preschoolers related to it wonderfully, using it as a guide for their own Yoga poses. They invented several and we took pictures to add to this stunning book. This Yoga work interested and calmed some of my more challenging students. Well worth the investment of money and time. Highly recommend.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book as a resource for my church's Preschool/Kindergarten Religious Exploration class. Each Sunday we have a class of 3-6 year olds for an hour. We break the time into short segnments and like to include some kinetic activities. They have together time, a spiritual message, a craft, a song, and then we use to play a game together. The games started getting a bit wild and sometimes too competative, so I thought a quieter physical activity like yoga might be a good fit. This book makes the positions so fun and easy: each child can be sucessful at thier own level. It has suggestions of how to use the poses, ways of advancing through the positions, a section sort of like a "teachers guide" so people unfamiliar with yoga (such as myself) can use it with confidence. The kids love doing Yoga and looking at the pictures to see how to do things. They are fully absorbed in trying to achieve the poses and talking about what a flower (or star or whatever the pose is modled on)feels like or sees or thinks. The book is very well done, thought provoking and affirming. I am fully delighted with it!! This is a wonderful adition to a young child's life.

As an educator, I found this book to be delightful, colorful and easy to understand. I would suggest this book even to adults trying Yoga for the first time. First of all, the layout and pictures were easy on the eye and I can see how this may attract young readers to its content, without an adult. The language and tone of the book was enjoyable. I think this is a good introduction to anyone beginning Yoga and I would recommend it very highly. Peace, Kind Essence (Karen thompson)
