Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS–Toddlers can move along with the playful illustrations and simple poses introduced in this book. Each colorful spread shows a child in a yoga pose on one side, while the opposing page pictures the animal the position is supposed to reflect. For example, the first spread shows, Yoga Baby in the flying eagle pose, and the facing page reads, spreads his arms like a butterfly. While a butterfly is depicted rather than an eagle, the idea is conveyed and the other poses are fairly straightforward. Youngsters are shown hanging down like a monkey (forward bend), breathing like a lion (lion breath), etc. The brightly hued backgrounds of blue, pink, purple, and yellow, combined with the large cartoon artwork, are pleasing to the eye. A note to adults offers some practice tips, and there is also a brief explanation of the poses. Yoga is all the rage, and this picture book will be popular where books on the topic are in demand.–DeAnn Tabuchi, San Anselmo Public Library, CA

From Booklist

PreS. Intended as a "gentle introduction" rather than a strict how-to manual, this small, square book offers a simple sequence of yoga poses designed especially for toddlers. On each cheerfully designed spread, a simple, black-outlined illustration shows a smiling toddler in a pose; on the opposite page, an animal mimics the same motion. The text is straightforward: "Yoga baby wags his tail like a dog" read the words above a boy, balanced in Downward Dog pose--just like the spotted pooch next to him. Appended material includes tips for adults to help guide children through the motions and photos of toddlers performing the poses. This slim offering isn't a necessary purchase, but there's little available about yoga for the toddler set, and the encouraging notes and well-chosen poses will give parents (and others who work with children) new ideas for channeling toddler energy.

Format: Hardcover
My daughter got this for Christmas and loves it. At 17 months old and she and her cousin, who is 2, do all the poses. Not always correctly but, they practice all the time. They always look for the book in the book shelf and have memorized the easy words and poses. It's adorable to see them becoming little Yogis! A fun book even for those that know nothing about Yoga as it relates the poses to well known animals and includes photos of toddlers doing the poses in the back as well as tips and an explanation for parents for teaching the poses correctly. As a former Yoga teacher, I highly recomend this book.

My two year old loves this book and quickly learned all the poses. The book has a few basic poses which are renamed for the animal they mimic. For example, "standing forward bend" is renamed "monkey" because the pose resembles a monkey bending over. The illustrations and text are simple and the back of the book has photos of actual children doing the poses along with some parental tips. It's a great book and I highly recommend it. It's also a great gift idea for a young child whose mom practices yoga.

My sister (2 years old at the time) loved doing yoga with me and was starting to make me look bad with her natural flexibility! :P

I wanted to find her a fun yoga book and checked out every single yoga for kids book and DVD from the library. This one was by far the winner. Some of the books were way too difficult and boring for her (My Daddy is a Pretzel) and some were just too weird (Wai Lana's Little Yogis VHS).

The first time we read this book she immediately jumped up and started trying the poses, all of which are perfect for kids and not so difficult that they get discouraged. She loved repeating back the animal noises and demanded that we read it again the second we finished reading it!

I also thought the illustrations were some of the cutest I've ever seen. The kids actually look like kids! I'm not digging the trend in kids' illustrations that make kids look like miniature emaciated adults.

Anyway, after reading it everyday while I had it from the library, I bought it here on Amazon along with Sleepy Little Yoga for her birthday. Now, at the ripe old age of 3 she's mastered all of the poses in this book and we can do the same poses together when I do yoga!

My 2 yr. old loves this book. The pictures are fun and easy to copy. It's a great way to keep her active when we have limited space.

My 18-month old loves this book. Every morning she opens it and does the postures without any prompting from me. The illustrations are fabulous, as well as the photographs of actual toddlers practicing yoga. I've used the book as a springboard to discuss all sorts of topics .... especially temper tantrums. When my daughter is upset, I tell her to "breath like a lion" to get her breathing and more importantly calm. I've practiced yoga for well over ten years and was hoping to introduce my daughter at some point. Little Yoga: A Toddler's First Book of Yoga enabled me to do so much earlier than I thought possible.

Format: Hardcover
Cute and very simple book. From a yoga teacher's perspective, the progression of poses could have been presented in a different order to allow for a smoother flow. But my toddler doesn't seem to mind standing up, than getting on the ground, than getting back up again, and then getting back on the ground again. (as a tired old mommy might!)

Format: Hardcover
Monkeys, lions, and yoga--what a wonderful combination! Little Yoga is a fun collection of basic poses demonstrated by animals such as monkeys, lions and dogs. The illustrations are adorable with great baby appeal. The back of the book has advice for parents and grandparents along with pictures of children demonstrating the poses. The sequence of poses could have more of a natural flow, but we just skip around to different pages. My granddaughter and I started yoga classes together over a year ago and we both enjoy this book, but I also think this book would make a wonderful gift for yoga newbies. Overall, it's a great first yoga book!

My daughter has had this book since she was 20 months old, and she is now almost 36 months. She still enjoys "making animals" and I anticipate she'll continue to enjoy it. One of the features of this book that I like is that there is an illustration of a child in the pose on one page and an illustration of the animal being mimicked on the facing page. There's also photos of real children doing the poses at the end. We enjoy the Sleepy Little Yoga book as well.
