ABC Yoga

Written & Illustrated by: Christiane Engel

For Ages: 5-6 years

Language: English

Topics Covered: Social-Emotional Learning, Mindfulness, Yoga.

Summary: This book is a great way to introduce children to yoga by weaving a story into the poses.  By having a pose with a picture for each letter of the alphabet, children understand how their bodies should look in the pose.  The fun animal-themed poses on each page ignite the imagination of the young audience!  Each letter page also has a short poem that helps to explain the pose- “jellyfish wobbles by.  Lie on your back-look at the sky” it also shows a child and a jellyfish interacting happily on the beach.  These simple illustrations are cheerful and easy to see, a key feature if they’re going to be shown during an actual yoga class!  Children of any age could begin their own practice of yoga, starting with this book.
