Summary: Energize your body and mind with this yoga island adventure book for young children!
Say good day to the magical island of Bali! Join Anamika, one of the Yoga Kids, as she travels with her family to Bali, Indonesia. Surf like a surfer, dance like a Balinese dancer, and sit like a monkey.
The book includes a list of Kids Yoga Poses, Map of Bali, Basic Indonesian Phrases, and a Parent-Teacher Guide with tips on creating a successful yoga experience. This yoga book for toddlers and preschoolers (ages 2 to 5) is more than a storybook, but it’s also a unique experience for children.
This was a charming book with a good balance of rhythm, storytelling, and great illustrations. Each page showed a fun way to connect different beginner yoga moves with the story. This book takes reading to a higher level - making it an active adventure. Perfect for the toddler years.
What really drove my rating up was the information included in the back of the book. It was nice to have a page that detailed all the poses from the book as well as the local language. It's little things like that that make this book special and worth adding to your library.
