Summary
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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Illustrated with lightly inked block prints depicting a small group of preschoolers bending and stretching in a serene, woodsy setting with no adults present, this introduction to yoga offers a sketchy but inviting demonstration of seven safe, relatively easy poses. Rather than focusing on finer details of posture or breath control, Yoo has each child demonstrate a basic position and then roar, hop (for the Frog pose), or otherwise express the animal (or in the case of the Mountain pose, the geological feature) after which the pose is named. A suggestion that children Namaste to the morning at the beginning and Namaste to each other at the end adds an important element of formality but will probably require a bit of exegesis. Still, this is otherwise better suited for younger practitioners than Laurent de Brunhoff's more specific and challenging Babar's Yoga for Elephants (2002).--Peters, John Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Yoo goes beyond downward dog to teach children yoga poses that mimic animals like a butterfly, frog, and cat. In alternating spreads, children demonstrate the steps for achieving each pose ("Lie on your stomach/ Hands next to shoulders/ Push up!") while the intervening spreads show the children in the position in natural settings alongside the animal or object they are emulating ("You are a... snake/ In the cool grass/ Slither and glide/ Make a big hiss"). The final spreads lead to a simmer-down in the bright sun: "Lie down and be still/ Slowly breathe in the garden/ Relax in the silence/ Namaste to each other." Yoo gracefully merges the spirit of yoga with children's intuitive sense of play. Ages 3-5. Agent: Holly McGhee, Pippin Properties. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
