Yoga Story Time with Alfred's Alphabet Walk by Victoria Chess

Introducing, Victoria Chess's, "Alfred's Alphabet Walk Book".  Alfred's mom wants him to learn his alphabet, but Alfred hid his ABC book.  He goes for a walk and encounters all things from A to Z.

"Alfred walked on and came to a grove to Quince trees. A Quarrelsome Queen bee came buzzing by, so he did not pick any Quinces."

The yoga poses you could do with your youth, *just* from this page could be:
  • Tree
  • Queen (plough) Pose
  • Bee Breath
  • Quinces (pretending to eat a quince)
How cool is that?  Another book for you to hunt up and use in your yoga childrens class!

Another good book for use in childrens yoga class!

Another great book to use in your childrens yoga class.  Albert B. Cub & Zebra, an alphabet storybook by Anne Rockwell.  Copyright 1977.

As another reviewer aptly put, "This deceptively simple alphabet story is really an ABC book/ wordless mystery story/puzzle combined. It is the story of Albert B. Cub in search of his friend Zebra. The whimsical illustrations take the reader around the globe, featuring images of things that begin with the letter dedicated to the page. Younger readers and sharp-eyed older readers, as well as adults, will enjoy naming all the items on the page that begin with the letter B, and the rest."

The possibilities with this book is endless!  There are so many different things on each page related to various yoga poses.

For example, the letter "D"; one could lead the children to do:
  • Dancer Pose
  • Dog
  • Doll (Ragdoll)
  • Duck
and some poses not related to the letter "D":
  • Star
  • Sunflowers
  • Moon
  • Chair
Here is the author's website if you'd like to acquire one of your own for your childrens yoga library!

Lovely book!
