“This delightful book on yoga builds community. Readers are presented with a brief riddle of a different yoga stance, paired with a charming image of a children acting out the pose. For instance, the author writes, “Sleek and graceful in the sea,/on land I flop more awkwardly./Smooth and round with flippered feet./Think if all the fish I eat” to describe a seal pose. The book emphasizes critically thinking while encouraging calmness, inner and outer poise, and flexibility. Young and old readers alike will enjoy this selection. Children will be captivated by the varying sentence structure and the twist of words, as they learn to honor the spirit in themselves and in others. Namaste.” –School Library Journal.
