Editorial Reviews

Review

"Yoo gracefully merges the spirit of yoga with children's intuitive sense of play." — Publishers Weekly

"A pleasingly uncomplicated introduction to yoga that can also simply be read as an invitation to play. A celebration of the ways that even young children can experience the wide world through their bodies as well as their minds." — Kirkus Reviews

"Extremely basic and appropriate for young children; the illustrations will encourage participation and some rambunctiousness. . . . Could be used to corral the energy of a rowdy group or an individual child. . . . A good choice for introducing yoga." — School Library Journal

"Inviting demonstration of seven safe, relatively easy poses." — Booklist

I ordered this because I thought it would be a fun way to introduce yoga to my students, but I wasn't sure how they would respond. They love it! They ask me everyday "can we do yoga today?" One of my students actually said that yoga made her feel "tranquil"...how's that for a first grader? Very happy with my purchase.

My 1st grade Daisy Girl Scout Troop loved this book! They loved imitating the characters posing in the book, and they enjoyed guessing which animal each character was posing like before I turned the page and revealed it. Very big hit with the 6-7 year old girls.

Format: Hardcover
Parents are constantly being bombarded with the fact that most children do not get enough exercise.

The story begins when children gather Namaste (a customary greeting when individuals meet) to each other in the morning sun. This word will throw a couple children, but a nice way to introduce Indian culture.

As children stretch their bodies, they also stretch their minds and make both the poses and sounds of the wild jungle animals.

A fun interactive book for those days that you just cannot get you little ones to sit still and read a book.

The simple instructions are easy for both you and your child to assume the yoga positions and guess what animal you are trying to be. Overall, the illustrations are not going to hold the attention for most children over multiple readings. I would only pull out this book occasionally for those overactive days when you want to spend some stretching and talking time with your child.

I have been doing this with my son for the past 4 months (he is almost 2) and he LOVES it. We get on our mats and read the book and do the poses. He will go get the book and bring it to me when he wants to do yoga.

Our two year old Grandson loves to show us what he does in his toddler movement class and we knew he would love this book. He drew a connection immediately and pulled out moms yoga mat!

My girls (2 and 4yrs) and I LOVE this. We've made it a bedtime ritual to help wind us down. I buy them a birthday gifts too...never too young to learn some yoga.

We love this book. My 2 year old asks for it over and over. She does all the poses as I'm reading.
