The first impression of Maximan after seeing this book was: “Mom, this looks like fun. Can we read it, please?!!!” He had to wait till the afternoon. And we had so much fun reading it. The story took us on an Australian adventure with all the different animals and it is not an “sit still and listen book”. No, it is a book with fun yoga exercises. Well, Maximan doesn’t know anything about yoga yet. But for the both of us it was great to have such an interactive experience while reading a story. It gives an extra dimension to the story. It makes the story come alive. Maximan even gave another twist to story.
I also love the environmental part in the story, which is not forced on us at all. But comes very natural.
There is an extra advantage to this book. As a mom to two young children and a third on the way and homeschooling, there is not much me-time at the moment. Which means, I don’t have time or don’t make time to work out. With this book, you work out, while you are having fun with your children. I must admit, we read this book two days ago. Meaning, Maximan and I did all these exercises two days ago and my muscles are still sore. I know, I need to work out more or I need to read Maximan more of these books! I do know which option Maximan would prefer.
Thanks again Kids Yoga Stories for sponsoring this giveaway.
About Giselle Shardlow from Kids Yoga Stories
I am also a certified yoga instructor and have led yoga classes here and there to young children since 2005, the year I started writing these stories. When I was asked to teach my first kids yoga class, I dove into research and was surprised at how few resources there were for a kids yoga instructor. So, I wrote my own.
I have always been passionate about working with children and throughout my world travels, I recognized a great need to address child illiteracy, obesity and stress.
My goal is to write stories that make reading fun – combined with movement, the stories thoroughly engage children as they laugh, express themselves, and stretch their imagination.
I hope that my books and other creative resources for kids are easy ways to introduce children everywhere to how fun reading and good health can be!
My Mission for Kids Yoga Stories is to bring education, health and happiness to young children everywhere.
