The ABCs of Yoga for Kids appeals to children's fun-loving imaginations.
Lots of kids are fascinated by yoga—probably because they see their parents doing it. Neither too simple nor too complex, the book includes more than 50 colorfully illustrated poses, with instructions in the form of short poems. The pose names used are playful, and the illustrations invite children to imagine what it's like to be a tree (Vrksasana), boat (Paripurna Navasana), cobra (Bhujangasana), butterfly (Purna Titali Asana), or rocking horse (Dhanurasana).
The author has found a way to make yoga accessible to even the youngest practitioner without reinventing it, dumbing it down, or "baby-fying" it. This isn't just yoga for kids; it's good yoga for kids.
