This book breaks away from the standard cute read for preschoolers to kindergarten. It does tell a story, but in the process it gets the children to do some exercises which are in essence basic stretches and beginner yoga moves. They are written out in a way that doesn’t seem like they are exercising but rather merely making moves like an assortment of animals. This sounds like fun to children and the pictures do a wonderful job of moving the story forward.
This book also gives you the option of getting a study guide, at no cost, online to go along with the book. As I don’t have young children at my house, I passed along the book and study guide to one of my friends who home schools her children who are in that age range. Here’s her response to using the book and study guide…
My kids love to do the exercises in the book over and over. But they could barely tolerate the questions in the lesson plan. My preschoolers would max out after three questions. I think most would. So I would recommend that teachers try it two times a week and ask only a few questions and focus more on the activity.
