Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS—This sweet and simple book can be used to calm a young child and to introduce yoga poses. It is very similar to this author and illustrator's Little Yoga (Holt, 2005). Colorful pages show a toddler in an easy pose opposite an animal in a similar position. The book is fun to share, even in a group storytime, while letting children do their own thing. Back matter includes explanations of the poses and general tips on practice for adults. A photo spread shows children practicing the postures. Some of them involve movement, which is not made clear from either the drawings or photographs, though it is explained in the notes. The author emphasizes that this is not a manual but an invitation to have fun and relax together; the book works well on that level. For a little more instruction, try Karen Pierce's Yoga Bear: Yoga for Youngsters (NorthWord, 2004).—Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough Public Library System, FL

My two year old enjoys this book quite alot. I am constantly surprised by the times and places she'll begin her yoga sessions, any where from the beach to the doctors office. Though I have not made it a part of our every day as I'd wanted to, the images and poses really seem to stick with her. Its a nice little book. Short and sweet, the poses are adapted for the very young, but if you have fun with it your child will too.

I wanted to teach my two year old some basic yoga positions and this book is a perfect starting point. Each page has a cute illustration showing how to do one pose (hang like a bat, curl up like a mouse, etc.) At the end of the book are photographs of an actual child doing each pose. This is a great book to introduce the concept of yoga to a little one.

This is a great little book! The illustrations are just darling and there is a helpful little guide in the back of the book for parents. I read it to my 3 year old and she did the positions quite easily - the animal comparisons for each move seemed to be inspiring to her. My nine year old even liked particpating.

I wish I had found this book sooner and plan on getting copies for my friends with toddlers/preschoolers.

My 1-1/2 year old loves to read this before bed and to try out the different poses. I'm not sure it actually makes her particularly sleepy but she enjoys it and it's fun to watch her blink like an owl. I like that in the back of the book there are more in depth explanations on how to do each pose.

After attending a few family yoga classes with me, my two-year-old was hooked. She wants to do my yoga videos with me every day, and is disappointed when I go to my classes alone. We got her this book for Christmas, and it was one of her favorite gifts. She grabs it every night at bedtime, flips through the pages, and pretends to be the yoga teacher showing us how to do the poses.

The eight simple asanas presented in this book are illustrated by animals - uttanasana (standing forward bend) is demonstrated by a sleepy hanging bat. A bunny, porcupine, owl, and bee teach other postures as well as breathing and eye palming techniques. It ends appropriately with savasana as your child pretends to drift off to sleep on a cloud. There is further information about yoga and the specific poses at the end of the book, as well as photos of toddlers practicing the postures.

Our whole family now joins in on the bedtime yoga, and it has been wonderful for our toddler in so many ways. She is still not able to hold the postures for very long (really only a few seconds), but I feel it's a great start to living a long, healthy life. Yoga is wonderful for calming children (try Child's Pose instead of a time-out!), and this book gives both children and parents a place to begin together. It is much simpler and less time-consuming than the Itsy Bitsy Yoga books (which are great, too, but much more of a commitment). It's also a fabulous tool for role-play - your toddler will love to be the yoga teacher!

I got this book for my 2.5 year old daughter; my only regret is that I didn't get it sooner! I've been trying to introduce her to the "basics" but without something to follow she hasn't been very enthusiastic. We started reading the book at bedtime, and we usually do it twice; once with the story, and then once with the pictures in the back. At the end, we practice "savasana" with the eye pillow on, and do the "aaahhh, shhhh" breathing.

I got this book to assist my 4 year old and 2 year old with a bedtime routine. The love this book. The like the animals and that they can be active while we read. I like the calm that the movements offer. One evening my oldest said " this makes me sleepy.". That's my goal. I also love the pictures. During the sleepy owl pose we stop to say our bedtime prayers. Only problem I have is that the binding wasn't very good and several pages have come loose.
