Kinds Words about Polly's Perfect Pet:

"I love sharing the story Polly's Perfect Pet with my class. Most kids love the idea of a pet, whether they have one or not. The movement images keep the kids engaged with the story, while even encouraging them to create some of their own poses to go along with each pet in the story. This story is great way to connect yoga to an everyday topic kids can relate to on various levels."
-Bernadette W.


"I had the pleasure of listening to Giselle read her new picture book during the last session of the School Yoga Bootcamp, and I received an advance PDF copy of the book. My son made a personal connection with another child not liking loud noises. I immediately thought of so many ways this picture book could be used in an elementary classroom. This story introduces new vocabulary and could be used as a writing prompt about pets, an introduction to note taking, and an introduction to negative and positive for pros and cons. This story would also work well for a kids yoga class or at-home kids yoga practice. This book connects well with several other materials by Giselle from Kids Yoga Stories, including the book Yoga Ideas for Science Class, Pet Yoga Cards, Bird Yoga Cards, and Pets Yoga Poster. I am looking forward to using this book in my classroom and with my yoga classes in the future." 
-Synthia G.

Yoga and problem solving in one single book

I really enjoyed reading the new yoga book from Giselle. It is not only well structured and easy to understand (I practice yoga with kids who are not native speaker of the English language) but also full of super yoga poses for kids. What I really liked in the book, that she went through a problem solving technic what the children can practice already in early age. At the end of the book there is a surprise and I am totally sure that you cannot guess which animal Poly will finally choose . Surprise, surprise!!!
I am waiting for the next book already.

Perfect pet

This is such a beautiful illustrated story with a wonderful story. Really love the layout and the yoga poses that are with the story. I would recommend to have this book in your collection not only for kids yoga teachers but parents, kindergartens, child care centres and schools. Great combined story with yoga for quiet time or anytime.

Exploring Emotions in 10 Minutes a Day - Workbook
Frances R. (Salt Spring Island, CA)
Exploring Emotions in 10 Minutes a Day

he children like the materials, and respond to them well. They also love the stories. Myself, as always, I particularly appreciate the drawings. We have added to the emotion of feeling bad about yourself, because it is more common for the children I have worked with to be feeling bad for other reasons than low self esteem. Sometimes we feel really 'bad' (more like feeling ill - ‘sickened’ !!!) because we have done an awful thing, acting unthinkingly. Sso that we have hurt someone else's feelings or lost their trust in us.
We don't find it quite appropriate to encourage ourselves to feel good about ourselves in those circumstances - because our 'high' opinion of ourselves makes us feel disappointment in how we behaved. We want to hold ourselves to a higher standard than that.
In our language, we want to return to being our Better Self. We know we can! So "restorative justice" is what we want to DO. We want to feel better about ourselves, yes - but even more than that, we want to make up for what we did, we want to make the other person or people feel better, feel OK. We want to heal harm, restore trust, and have EVERYONE feeling better.
We love doing "restitution" - fixing what went a bit wrong back there.
We also have a song that we sing: "May we be filled with loving kindness, May all be well, May we be peaceful and at ease, May we be happy." That's the last verse - before that, we replace the "we" with “May you be - - -,” singing to the person we harmed in some way, then we sing to ourselves using "May I be - - -". This helps us feel not so bad about what we went and did back then, when we felt tired, impatient, frustrated, or simply mean-mindedly cross! - or any of the feelings you deal with so well. We need to be “understanding’ about ourselves and each other. We are growing to understand that feelings come unexpectedly, but feelings can change and be gone too.
[All this arises from me having previously used feelings I called "Mad, Bad, Sad or Glad" - for ease of them writing them! We used to check in on how much of each of those we're feeling right now, or had coursing through us when an incident occurred earlier in the day. I saw that feeling Bad is a strong feeling to deal with. They don't think it is low self esteem, So - more like high self esteem! They feel Bad that they have let themselves down, is what I'd describe it as.
Sorry my review is so LONG!

Exploring Emotions in 10 Minutes a Day

As an Elementary School Counselor, I have found this resource to be both useful and beneficial for the students I work with. I work in a Kindergarten- Grade 5 Elementary School, and I have found this resource to be helpful in small group work, as well as individual 1:1 counseling situations.
Thank you for creating this useful tool for children!

Kind Regards,

Earth Day Yoga Card Bundle

I teach kids and youth yoga at schools and use the Kids Yoga Stories cards as visuals and for games. The Earth Day bundle was a great addition for our yoga sessions. The children engage and love the visual ideas, poses and add their own. We also use them to create a flow or start off conversations. Thanks Kids Yoga Stories!

Creative and innovative

I like Giselle yoga cards. They have so many different options to offer and my students enjoy all the themes. They enjoy being characters from the cards. The yoga poses are simple and come with explanatory descriptions.
