This sweet and simple book can be used to calm a young child and to introduce yoga poses. It is very similar to this author and illustrator's Little Yoga (Holt, 2005). Colorful pages show a toddler in an easy pose opposite an animal in a similar position. The book is fun to share, even in a group storytime, while letting children do their own thing. Back matter includes explanations of the poses and general tips on practice for adults. A photo spread shows children practicing the postures. Some of them involve movement, which is not made clear from either the drawings or photographs, though it is explained in the notes. The author emphasizes that this is not a manual but an invitation to have fun and relax together; the book works well on that level. For a little more instruction, try Karen Pierce's Yoga Bear: Yoga for Youngsters (NorthWord, 2004).
