Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fans of Jean de Brunhoff's Babar the Elephant stories and yoga practitioners will find a happy confluence in Babar's Yoga for Elephants." —Publishers Weekly
"Babar makes it work. He stars in one of the nicest gift books." —The New York Times
 
 Perfect for everyone who loves yoga or elephants - a NEW Babar book Well before yoga became fashionable via Sting and Madonna, our friend Babar and all the residents of Celesteville were finding peace and tranquillity through yoga. And now elephants everywhere can join them! Through easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step illustrations, Babar's Yoga for Elephants presents 15 positions and stretches as well as helpful breathing exercises. The book also provides useful advice on what to do with your trunk while in position, a dilemma that human yoga books often ignore. Written by Babar himself, the book explains how yoga was introduced to Celesteville and how he and Celeste keep fit doing yoga on their many travels. Babar's Yoga for Elephants is a classic for elephants as well as their human friends.

Review:

?....Humorous touches make the most of the elephant's anatomy (?I find wrapping my trunk around my feet helps to stretch?), and a series of pages show Babar and friends emulating landmarks while practicing various positions (e.g., a Downward-Facing Dog in front of I.M. Pei's pyramid at the Louvre).? Publisher's Weekly

Review:

"Even nonhuman celebrities have joined the act, albeit with less emphasis on spiritual redemption. Laurent de Brunhoff's Babar's Yoga for Elephants traces yoga back to prehistoric elephants (who, contrary to human custom, practiced with shoes on)." Andrea Thompson, The New Yorker

Synopsis:

Written by Babar himself, this instruction manual explains how yoga was introduced to Celesteville and how he and Celeste keep fit doing yoga on their many travels. Many human yoga books don't tell you what to do with your trunk whilst practising yoga; Babar however provides full instructions.

Synopsis:

Babar explains how yoga was introduced to Celesteville and how he and Queen Celeste keep fit doing yoga on their many travels. Includes a pull-out poster showing Babar in yoga poses. Full color. Consumable.
