Overview

With simple instructions and bright, clear illustrations, award-winning artist Taeeun Yoo invites children to enjoy yoga by assuming playful animal poses. And she sparks their imagination further by encouraging them to pretend to be the animal – to flutter like a butterfly, hiss like a snake, roar like a lion and more. Yoga is great for kids because it promotes flexibility and focus – and it’s relaxing good fun! The charming pictures of children and animals and the lyrical text make this gentle introduction to yoga a book to be treasured.

Praise

"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
