You Are a Lion!: And Other Fun Yoga Poses Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With simple instructions and bright, clear illustrations, award-winning artist Taeeun Yoo invites children to enjoy yoga by assuming playful animal poses. And she sparks their imagination further by encouraging them to pretend to be the animal - to flutter like a butterfly, hiss like a snake, roar like a lion and more. Yoga is great for kids because it promotes flexibility and focus - and it's relaxing good fun! The charming pictures of children and animals and the lyrical text make this gentle introduction to yoga a book to be treasured.

Review:

"Yoo goes beyond downward dog to teach children yoga poses that mimic animals like a butterfly, frog, and cat. In alternating spreads, children demonstrate the steps for achieving each pose ('Lie on your stomach/ Hands next to shoulders/ Push up!') while the intervening spreads show the children in the position in natural settings alongside the animal or object they are emulating ('You are a... snake/ In the cool grass/ Slither and glide/ Make a big hiss'). The final spreads lead to a simmer-down in the bright sun: 'Lie down and be still/ Slowly breathe in the garden/ Relax in the silence/ Namaste to each other.' Yoo gracefully merges the spirit of yoga with children's intuitive sense of play. Ages 3 — 5. Agent: Holly McGhee, Pippin Properties. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
