When I read this book, I felt like getting up and doing all of the poses except it wasn't my bedtime. I wish so much this book had been around when my daughter was little, but I highly recommend it to parents of little ones.

Shelves: yoga-for-children. The yoga component itself is a wonderful tool. Many educators and parents use yoga to help children calm themselves.
As an adult who has recently started yoga, I truly understand how effective yoga can be to reduce stress. While concentrating on maintaining the yoga position, breathing, and tightening or softening appropriate muscles, the mind is so busy it cannot focus on the stressor that occurred. Yoga is an easy and effective tool to help children in dealing with their emotions and stresses.
Each book contains helpful end notes to guide the parent or educator to safely and successfully introduce yoga to children and making it a more meaningful and enjoyable experience for everyone.
For example in Good Night, Animal World introduces the reader to children from different parts of the world. Each child has a name common in their country and says hello in their native language. Each page features an animal for a different part the world and the child from that region demonstrating the pose named for a characteristic of that animal. In addition the book contains a map depicting where the animals live. Also included are the flags for each country represented in the book. This book is also available in Spanish. As a retired school librarian, I appreciate books which can be used to introduce multiple ideas.
And engaging stories such as these have been proven to be a successful way to introduce students to concepts. The author has done an expert job at packing a variety of knowledge into bright, cheerful picture books. I sell the Yoga Kids Stories in my personal book business www. I highly recommend this book in the Yoga Kids Stories series.
This title is one of about 10 books in the Yoga Kids Stories. These books integrate yoga poses into stories that provide information, about animals, other countries and often present educational concepts such as shapes, colors and seasons. Some titles in the series teach life lessons such as embracing diversity.

While the age group for this book is roughly ages As the mom of three girls, I know it is important for me to set the right example of not only taking care of my family but myself as well. The simple refrain of telling the animals goodnight had a soothing quality as they bent and stretched away the tension and worries of the day. So imagine our giggles when we saw the Sheepdog practicing his! That is how cute this book is.
