I recently had a friend stay with us who loved Yoga. As a result my little G wanted to do Yoga too, so when I saw this book available for a blog tour, I was so excited.

It opens with children all over the world, greeting us hello, and setting the tone for a wonderfully diverse picture book.
Each animal is depicted with one of the children of the world copying with a very simple yoga pose.

The poses were so fun and little G absolutely loved it. She diligently followed along and at the end said, "AGAIN, AGAIN."
The conclusion of the book has some great tips on creating a calm and soothing environment to help prepare your little one for sleep.
The illustrations were really sweet and the poses were very easy to follow.
Our bottom line, we loved this book and will probably make it a little bedtime routine.

Yoga is such a wonderful way to get your kids up and moving and a healthy habit. Reading and trying the animal inspired poses in this book, prior to bedtime, will help calm and relax your child before they drift off to dream land. Love the international flavor and the nice bright illustrations in the book!

Travel the world and practice yoga at the same with your child in Good Night Animal World: A Kids Yoga Bedtime Story. Readers will travel through six continents: Central America, Asia, Australia, North America, Europe and Africa. Along the way, readers will meet special animals that inspired each of the yoga poses. This is a fun book that helps inspire yoga practice with your child. The illustrations feature an animal and an inset of a child in a different yoga pose in each page. I love to practice yoga and this book includes thirteen different poses to start your practice with your child.

I read Good Night Animal World to my 5 year old daughter and we both loved it. The book starts with six children from different parts of the world introducing themselves. I tried to use a different voice for all six children and my daughter loved that, she thought it was so funny. Before reading each page we would talk about the animal and tried to copy the pose. She would hold that pose until I was done reading that page and would say goodnight to the animal. She said goodnight to each animal right after I did and I thought that was so cute. In the back of the book there is a map of the animals around the world and a list of the yoga poses with demonstration. This book was so fun for me and my daughter and I recommend it to parents with very young children. I give this bedtime book 5 stars!

Putting children to bed can be tough enough. But when you’re trying to calm them down after a long day, it can really test you. But what if a book could create a wonderful bedtime routine incorporating yoga, a relaxing story and just plain wonderful bonding time?

This book would be a wonderful routine to add to your bedtime routine for a toddler. By matching the poses with different animals, your child can pretend she’s like the animal while learning basic yoga stances.

I have friends whose children have tried yoga and have loved it; however, I have two very energetic boys. We did try the poses, which I enjoyed, but they just couldn’t center themselves enough for yoga. My oldest even had to do yoga at summer camp, but it just wasn’t a match for him.

While yoga may not be for everyone, I think it’s a wonderful practice to introduce and expose children to. Good Night Animal World can be a terrific outlet for many kids… and adults, too!

Beautifully illustrated with a simple storyline, children are taken on a peaceful journey around the world as they discover different animals and learn to imitate them through a variety of different poses. Each page, introduces a new animal and a new pose. Each pose is found at the bottom corner of the page in an eye-catching circle with a child demonstrating the pose and the name of it written above the circle. There is also a list of all the poses at the end of the book as well as a guide for parents full of tips for initiating your child to the world of yoga. A beautiful book with an international flair.

Good Night Animal World is a sweet little children's book that shows different animals from around the world going to sleep. With each animal, a yoga pose is shown by one of the children in the book. It is said that yoga can help children as well as adults relax so this could be a very calming book to read to your child before bed.

The illustrations in Good Night Animal World are full of vibrant colors that are very eye-catching, yet soothing. The text is very simple and not overwhelming for even the youngest of children. Including the poses on each page allows for children to interact with the book if they wish to while you read.

After the story, there is an illustrated guide for all of the poses found in the book as well as a kids yoga stories guide. The author bases her advice on her experience as a mother, but she does suggest checking with your children's pediatrician if they are having sleep issues. I think you will find Good Night Animal World to be a very soothing book with lots of helpful tips to helping your child relax.

This review originally appeared on Christy's Cozy Corners. I received a free ecopy of the book for an honest review which I've given.
