The ABCs of Yoga for Kids uses the alphabet, rhyming vignettes, and colourful illustrations to introduce children to yoga in a kid-friendly way. Each of the fifty-six different poses featured in the book delightfully promote flexibility, strength, and co-ordination while encouraging children to incorporate healthy activity into their daily lives. Yoga is a non-competitive form of exercise, suitable for children (and adults) of all ages and athletic abilities. Any activity for young children is important because the nation, including our youth, is under siege by obesity, stress, and diseases like diabetes, which stem from poor diet and lack of exercise. Yoga for young kids will create good habits and a foundation for well-being. Children have a lot of fun learning new positions, new letters, and new ideas. This book will delight and bring joy to the early yoga practitioner.

This was a delightful little book introducing young children to yoga posses and explaining the importance of it to parents. Poses are clearly described and and it even give you an idea of what to tell children while doing it. If you find yourself struggling to understand described position, let me tell you, illustrations in this book will show it all. (illustrations are so good, you don’t even need to read the book ;) )

Yoga is an amazing too to wind out children, help them to focus and increase their awareness of their own body.  As an Early Childhood Educator this is a wonderful tool I will definitely incorporate into my curriculum!

By the way, did you know that this book is suitable for adults too? If you always fancied trying yoga, but didn’t want to commit to expensive classes, look no further – you can benefit from this book too.

I received a review copy from publisher through Netgalley for honest opinion. Nobody paid me to write this.
