Reading More: The ABCs of Yoga for Kids

A copy of The ABCs of Yoga for Kids by Teresa Anne Power and illustrated by Kathleen Rietz was made available to me by the publisher at no charge to me through NetGalley. The opinions are my own.

Can I tell you what a lovely day it was when I figured out I could look through NetGalley’s sections and request books that weren’t sent to me? Can I also tell you it was an accident? A super happy accident, but an accident none the less.

This accident brought me to the The ABCs of Yoga for Kids and I am delighted.

Aren’t happy accidents the best? Especially with free books…some of the free books aren’t so good.

From the Amazon,

The ABCs of Yoga for Kids uses the alphabet, rhyming vignettes, and colorful illustrations to introduce children to yoga in a kid-friendly way. Each of the fifty-six different poses featured in the book delightfully promote flexibility, strength, and coordination while encouraging children to incorporate healthy activity into their daily lives. Yoga is a noncompetitive form of exercise, suitable for children (and adults) of all ages and athletic abilities. Any activity for young children is important because the nation, including our youth, is under siege by obesity, stress, and diseases like diabetes, which stem from poor diet and lack of exercise. Yoga for young kids will create good habits and a foundation for well-being. Children have a lot of fun learning new positions, new letters, and new ideas. This book will delight and bring joy to the early yoga practitioner.

I don’t know about the promise of good habits and a foundation for well-being with one book, but if you can get a kiddo interested in something healthy that’s new, then that’s a good thing.

This book was super cute! The illustrations were beautiful photos, the description of each pose was done as a cute poem and overall I enjoyed it.

Some of the rhyming felt a little forced and I could probably come up with other poses for some of the letters, but if your little one is interested in yoga, this seems like a good place to start.

Is this a book you and your kids would be interested in?
