Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Similar to Solis's Storytime Yoga (Mythic Yoga Studio, 2006), this book combines storytelling with the teaching of yoga poses and meditation. The tales focus on the philosophical limbs of this ancient art, and suggestions are made for opening discussion on themes such as nonviolence, courage, compassion, anger control, etc. Solis provides options for using the material with children younger than her recommended 8 to 12 years and for combining the stories with poses or sharing them before or after yoga. She touches on a variety of faiths, so the book is inclusive while making it clear that this is not about religion but about self-esteem and acceptance. The author is a natural teacher, and the conversational text is easy to follow. The black-and-white photographs of children are not very professional, but they do help illustrate the basic poses. But most useful are the author's experience and understanding of kids, which come through as she discusses techniques for teaching.-Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough Public Library System, FL
