Recommended Books for Kids (Some even have suggested poses)
We often incorporate books into our kids classes. Some specifically cite yoga asanas (poses), and others do not but have meaning which align closely with yoga themes. Looking for a good way to pass the time at home unplugged with the kiddos? We recommend these books.
I am Yoga by by Susan Verde and Peter H. Reynolds - a classic yoga book with suggested poses and even a guide at the end!
Lemonade hurricane by Licia Morelli and Jennifer E. Morris -a great book which discusses mindfulness and how kids can slow their minds when everything feels out of control.
Yoga Frog by Nora Shalaway Carpenter and Mark Chambers - a cute book which discusses how yoga makes us feel better. Book even includes a little yoga frog!
If Animals Kissed Goodnight by Ann Whitford Paul (Author), David Walker (Illustrator) - great for getting ready for naps or bedtime. Animals in the story can be incorporated into poses, as well.
There are so so many more. Many of your favorite books can appl by figuring out yoga poses on the pages (ie dogs = down dog, cats = cat pose, etc). Happy reading & practicing!
