    8. This is a different kind of interactive picture book It is meant to introduce children to some basic yoga poses It reads like a story, and the illustrations show how the child should position their body, and then it provides an animal name for each pose It s a fun and different idea This would make an interesting read aloud for younger grades, I m thinking kindergarten It gets them moving and is a fun way to read

A great introduction to yoga for young kids The various poses are explained in simple steps and are easy to imitate The page breaks before revealing the animal s name make a fun guessing game for storytime audiences The writing is filled with elegant, descriptive language that reads almost like poetry I love the diversity of children modeling the poses.
