Praise

“This ABC picture book introduces yoga poses by linking them to specific countries… Whether a cobra from Thailand or a waterfall from Zimbabwe, the movements are fun and easy to emulate. The familiar ABC pattern is nonthreatening and should help get kids moving while they gain basic familiarity with yoga. This engaging choice is meant for sharing, especially during family storytime.”

Backstory

I was inspired to write The ABCs of Yoga for Kids series of books and products because I saw the need for teaching yoga to young children in a fun way that appealed to their imagination and sense of playfulness. I believe that kids should be encouraged to embrace yoga at a young age because during these formative years they are very impressionable and open to new ideas and concepts. Yoga is a natural and healthy way for kids to exercise, relax focus, and strengthen their minds and bodies. While teaching yoga to preschool age children, I came up with the idea for a yoga dictionary of poses to teach kids both the alphabet and simple yoga poses. This basic idea evolved into my bestselling and award-winning product line, The ABCs of Yoga for Kids. At the time I wrote the original ABCs of Yoga for Kids book, there were no other illustrated yoga books in the marketplace, and I was looking to create a book that had kid-friendly illustrations and easy to read instructions for teachers to use to introduce yoga to young children.
