PreS-Gr 4-Khalsa is enthusiastic about the exercises she includes but the presentation is uneven. Directions for the movements are mixed with brief stories or images for the participants to focus on. For example, "the yoga mountain story" is presented along with poses that reflect the action of the tale. Appealing black-and-white photographs of Khalsa's young students performing the exercises appear throughout. A separate section explains how each action helps the body and mind. Unfortunately, the instructions are sometimes unclear; the author often eliminates steps or does not fully explain a position. Also, she does not specify if all of the movements are safe for younger children. This book is confusing and mediocre at best. Thia Luby's Children's Book of Yoga (Clear Light, 1998) is a better choice.-Barb Lawler, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA
