  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2012 March #1
    Illustrated with lightly inked block prints depicting a small group of preschoolers bending and stretching in a serene, woodsy setting with no adults present, this introduction to yoga offers a sketchy but inviting demonstration of seven safe, relatively easy poses. Rather than focusing on finer details of posture or breath control, Yoo has each child demonstrate a basic position and then roar, hop (for the Frog pose), or otherwise express the animal (or in the case of the Mountain pose, the geological feature) after which the pose is named. A suggestion that children "Namaste to the morning" at the beginning and "Namaste to each other" at the end adds an important element of formality but will probably require a bit of exegesis. Still, this is otherwise better suited for younger practitioners than Laurent de Brunhoff's more specific and challenging Babar's Yoga for Elephants (2002). Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
