PreS–Toddlers can move along with the playful illustrations and simple poses introduced in this book. Each colorful spread shows a child in a yoga pose on one side, while the opposing page pictures the animal the position is supposed to reflect. For example, the first spread shows, Yoga Baby in the flying eagle pose, and the facing page reads, spreads his arms like a butterfly. While a butterfly is depicted rather than an eagle, the idea is conveyed and the other poses are fairly straightforward. Youngsters are shown hanging down like a monkey (forward bend), breathing like a lion (lion breath), etc. The brightly hued backgrounds of blue, pink, purple, and yellow, combined with the large cartoon artwork, are pleasing to the eye. A note to adults offers some practice tips, and there is also a brief explanation of the poses. Yoga is all the rage, and this picture book will be popular where books on the topic are in demand.–DeAnn Tabuchi, San Anselmo Public Library, CA
