Yoga books and Children -- YogaKiddos

Worked the Highland Park book fair this past winter and found this excellent book, for using in YogaKiddos.

S for Snowman - God's Wintertime Alphabet
S for Snowman - God's Wintertime Alphabet

Written by Kathy-jo Wargin and Illustrated by Richard Johnson.

One of the pages tells us, "E is for Evergreen" The Evergreen branches will twinkle with light to tell us God's love is eternally bright.  And the kiddos can do Tree pose for this particular page in the book.

Q is for Quilt.  A Quilt on our laps as we sit down to rest, each square tells a story of how we are blessed.  We'd act out being shivery, and then pulling on our toasty quilt!

Lovely book.........but wait.

Then Ms. Tammy J, gave Grace a book for
Christmas.....I kept wondering why she'd ask, if I had this book or not.....
Animalia by Graeme Base
Animalia by Graeme Base.  Okay page one.  "An Armoured Armadillo Avoiding An Angry Alligator".  Wow, just limitless possibilities is using this book in YogaKiddos classes. 

Another page, has, "Great Green Gorillas Growing Grapes in a Gorgeous Glass Greenhouse."  Gorilla Pose, Greenhouse...again, lots of imagination to explore, in using these books with kids and yoga!

Can't wait to figure this one out!
