I won this in a GOODREADS giveaway. This book will inspire children, of all ages, to obtain yoga nirvana! What a beautiful and entertaining story. Filled with exotic animals in their zoo habits. (No farm animals here!) A wonderfully detailed and colorfully illustrated book with poetic rhyming words to match. I adore Lyla's hair; drawn to be as vivacious as she is! The author, considerately, included two back pages to explain the correct yoga positions, for the parental novices like me! Expect your child to add this to their "just one more time" reading ritual!

Colorful and rhyming! Tantra is one of the ancestral knowledge that I consider most valuable to have a balanced and healthy life. I think yoga is a discipline that is worth teaching to toddlers and this book is an attractive and colorful introductory resource for that purpose. The illustrations are wonderful, very imaginative with friendly animals, and contains 11 poses with lovely short rhyming texts! My gratitude to the Publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to review the book

Parent and child yoga. With yoga enjoying widespread favour, I'm sure this will be a popular book. Children love to share with parents, and what better than exercising together? Although intended for children aged four to eight, my 18 month grandchild was mesmerised by the colourful illustrations of the zoo animals, and I don't think it would be long before he might attempt to copy some of their movements. Maybe not a book for grandparents to share as I'm not as nimble as I once was, but I'm sure this will be a hit with parents who are happy to slither on the ground or balance on one leg to demonstrate the actions. In case of any doubt, full descriptions of the eleven poses are included at the end of the book.

This rhyming, counting book features a little girl trying out yoga poses with help from her friends at the zoo. Each page shows an adorable illustration of Lyla in her yoga position, along with 1-10 animals giving helpful instructions. The rhyming stanzas don't specifically say how to do the pose, but they give enough description to make the story fun. The end of the book includes the list of poses Lyla was doing with instructions on how to do them correctly. This book is perfect for kids ages 3-5 who need to take a moment to relax. I could see my son following along when he was younger. The counting aspect makes this a book that younger children would also enjoy. The text is fairly simple, and the focus could be on counting the animals and not necessarily on the yoga poses. http://www.momsradius.com/2017/06/kid-lit-zoo-zen.html

This is such a fun book for children - and a super fun way to learn yoga! Rhyming verse along with the beautiful illustrations teach youngsters the various yoga poses. Friendly zoo animals mimic Lila as she performs her yoga poses. Lila with her curly mop of dark hair is so cute and her facial expressions are priceless as she progresses through the poses. Beautiful colorful book!
