Good Morning Yoga!

I was so excited to receive this book in the mail from Blue Slip Media.  I immediately dove right in and was captivated by the bright illustrations and the descriptive text.  Mariam Gates and Sarah Jane Hinder have created something quite special.  This book is made to not only be read aloud, but to be used with students.  The incorporation of yoga poses is unique and will be embraced by the pre-elementary and primary audience for which it is intended as well as by teachers and librarians who want to provide a way for students to stretch, engage, and better focus on learning for the day.

But don't just take my word for it, listen to the author, Mariam Gates, read the story below and take a look at the gorgeous illustrations:

Want another taste?  How about this beautiful book trailer?  (Great for sharing with teachers!)

And my absolute favorite... this video shows the author with a group of students going through each part of the book in a yoga class.  

Could you do this in your classroom (or home or library)?  Of course you could!
