Overview

Once again Storytime Yoga brings the health and joy of yoga and storytelling to children and families. The follow-up to the award-nominated book Storytime Yoga: Teaching Yoga to Children Through Story, The Treasure in Your Heart: Yoga and Stories for Peaceful Children brings the universal wisdom of yoga philosophy using interfaith stories to teach peace and character education to children and families.

This book, for teachers and parents to share with the children ages 6 and up, has 26 teaching tales culled from the world's faith traditions. It features such gems as Mohammad and the Cat from Islam about kindness, Brahma's Tears from Hinduism about unity, Calming the Storm from Christianity about courage, and Conejito and the Wax Doll from Native America about anger management. Plus, there are many stories from African, Buddhist and Sufi traditions as well. This book also focuses on meditation and relaxation for children to improve health and literacy, and features follow-up activities and the classic Storytime Yoga method of yoga poses scripted with the stories!

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
