From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—Another pleasing picture book from the creative team behind The Museum (2013) and You and Me (2015, both Abrams). Verde's lyrical language meshes well with Reynolds's peaceful, tranquil cartoon illustrations, done in muted tones. A young girl explains why she does yoga and describes each move as she does them. "I can sail on the sea./ I go with the flow" accompanies The Boat Pose. "I can carry beauty with me./ I am full" with a Bow/Basket Pose. Fun to read, the narration encourages movement, and the author note and information on each pose at the end of the book are great teaching tools. VERDICT A delightful introduction to the subject as well as a wonderful read-aloud for movement and mindfulness.—Jane Hebert, Glenside Public Library District, Glendale Heights, IL
"Empowering affirmations and playful illustrations will inspire both children and adults to slow down and strike a pose."

I Am Yoga, the first in the series, helped me to gain an understanding of yoga which had previously eluded me - and I love yoga! Included in the back are a series of simple yoga poses for children. Since kids are apt to skip the fine print, you might want to point this out to your young reader.
I am Peace: A Book of Mindfulness hit home. The opening words "There are times when I worry about what might happen next and what happened before" seem to define my every moment. It's not so much that I'm a worrier as that the mind always seems to be engaged in mulling over past events and preparing for what's next; living in the moment is not exactly our culture's strong suit. Hence the need for Mindfulness. There is a lovely guided meditation in the back of the book. Again, if your young reader doesn't want to read the fine print, consider reading it to her.
I am Human: A Book of Empathy teaches the reader about kindness towards others. Oddly missing in the text is acknowledgement that others are human, too. I mean, of course they are. But I (the reader) am clearly not the only one who makes mistakes. The fine print in the back of the book includes a loving-kindness meditation which I put to immediate use, reminded once again that the reason we forgive is to give ourselves peace of mind.
I highly recommend this smart serenity-inducing series.
I wanted to have hard copy, so I opted for the board book, and was disappointed to find that it was missing the second and third page, with the part about the girl feeling like she doesn't fit in and things spinning so fast. They weren't torn out or anything like that, they simply were not part of the book. I'm not sure if it was a counterfeit copy or misprint, but amazon did refund my purchase and allow me to keep it, so I can't complain. that said it kind of renders the book useless and I went ahead to purchase a hardcopy and trash the version I received (I felt it wrong to even donate if it was in fact bootleg). I would give this book itself a 5 star rating, but only went with four to hopefully keep anyone else from buying this board book copy. I don't trust Amazon's source to buy the hard copy after this incident, so went to another vendor.
