K-Gr 3—A fun, approachable way for children to learn about yoga. Based on the YouTube series of the same name starring the author, these volumes deal with self-help issues like bullying and coping with anger. The movement of the plot corresponds with numerous yoga moves. Each pose is explained in kid-friendly language ("come up to your knees and stretch your arms wide"), along with pictures of Amor demonstrating. In addition to presenting an enjoyable take on exercise, each title features interactive elements such as songs, along with bright illustrations that correspond with the cartoons from the original videos. The plots are underdeveloped, though the positive messages about self-love and self-control are reinforced with affirmations at the end. However, children will likely be so engaged by the creative and entertaining poses that the story line will not matter. Tips for how to effectively use the series—employing a yoga mat and doing poses for both sides of the body—are included. VERDICT This fun tool will serve as a positive introduction to yoga and encourage kids to be active.—Kathryn Justus, Renbrook School, West Hartford, CT

The books themselves are really nice, thick pages and a hardcover. Really nice for younger kids who are a little rough on them. Plus they lay open for them to do the yoga moves without the book shutting on them.
The story is adorable and has a lot of real life points to it, so they are learning more then just yoga!
I love them and can't wait to get all of them! <3
It is a story about traveling to Tanzania and meeting LuLu the lion cub. LuLu is trying to learn how to roar and it isn't going well. The cub is getting very frustrated and angry. He learns how to deal with those emotions and then when the volcano is going to erupt, he learns to roar and saves all of the animals. That is the story portion of the book.
The main idea of the book is to teach young children yoga poses. These poses are woven into the story and a woman demonstrates how to do them. I guess the woman is the storyteller. The book says it is aiming for children 4 to 8. I don't know that it could keep a 4 year olds attention. I think after the first couple of poses, the child would just be running around acting like animals or an airplane. I think the story portion is too simple for an 8 year old. I think the yoga is the right fit for that age range, but the story is geared for the 4 year old. The story and the yoga do not match in age appropriateness.
I think teaching children yoga is a fantastic idea. It will add stretching and help settle their minds. I don't know that this book is the right way to do it. It would require getting up doing the pose, then sitting down to read one more page, then getting up to do another pose. It just doesn't mesh well. I read that their YouTube channel was a great success and I think that would be a much better way to do this. Or videos. I don't think books are the right medium.
