The hugely successful Cosmic Kids YouTube channel helps children discover yoga by joining presenter Jaime on monthly yoga adventures, each one a story featuring a loveable animal character that achieves something amazing. Aimed at 4 to 8-year-olds, the Cosmic Kids yoga books offer children a chance to take the yoga more slowly than is possible in a fast-moving video, to spend more time in their favourite poses, and also to enjoy reading or listening to the story. Each book is themed around a specific area of wellbeing - in the case of Twilight, this is relaxing at bedtime and exploring the world of dreams. In this truly magical adventure we encounter Twilight the Unicorn in an enchanted night-time forest, as well as a host of other characters, incuding an owl, a mouse and the moon and stars themselves. The Cosmic Kids' mission in this adventure is to scatter starshine and bring a peaceful sleep and lovely dreams to all. The story concludes with a relaxation and some affirmations to reinforce the soothing message of the book. With bright illustrations, the books are designed to mirror the Cosmic Kids look, and to allow children to get to know a range of characters from the Cosmic Kids shows. There's also information at the back to help parents and teachers introduce children to yoga, even if they don't practise yoga themselves.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a story and yoga all rolled into one. All children need to be read stories and have exercise, so why not let them help with the story by doing yoga poses that match what is happening. In this Cosmic Kids story, we have Twilight the Unicorn. She had a bad dream and now doesn't want to go back to sleep. We learn that it is important to have sleep, because it helps us be strong. We also need to know that no matter what our dreams are, good or bad, that we are safe. Thank you for the free digital ARC for me to give an honest review, Watkins Publishing and NetGalley!
