A Yoga Story About Friendship, Happiness and Acceptance


Anna and her Rainbow-Colored Yoga Mats available on Amazon
Anna finds happiness practicing yoga at recess. She imagines traveling the world and exploring new places. Will her new classmates accept her and join the fun?

Giselle Shardlow, M.Ed., founder of Kids Yoga Stories, uses one of the yoga principles that states, “To be happy yourself, be happy for those around you” in this gentle yoga book for children.

Anna, who feels shy and nervous on her first day at a new school, is guided by this yoga principle, which her mother taught her. She finds a way to be happy on the inside and not worry about fitting in.

Anna’s happiness comes from within her and blossoms across the school, drawing others to her. Hopefully, this “happiness” strategy can become a part of our emotional regulation and coping toolkit, as one more way to build tolerance and develop friendships, ultimately increasing our quality of life.

This kids yoga book can be added to your kindergarten learning activities, mindful moments, play therapy story time, calm down corner, collection of feelings books for preschoolers, as an anxiety relief tool, part of your brain breaks in the classroom, circle time, counseling sessions, social emotional learning activities, emotional regulation strategies, mommy me yoga, preschool yoga exercises, or kindergarten yoga breaks.

This beautifully illustrated children’s book about friendship, happiness, and self-esteem is aimed at four- to seven-year-olds (preschoolers, PreK, kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade). Parents and caregivers can also read this children's yoga and wellness book at home during transition times, after school, or at bedtime.

Yoga and mindfulness books for kids are suitable for children of all abilities, including children with autism, ADHD, anxiety, depression, anger management issues, or other additional needs. 
Anna and her Rainbow-Colored Yoga Mats also makes for a lovely gift if you are looking for something unique and educational, while incorporating literacy!

Beautiful book

I love this book and I m sure my children will love it too when I introduce it to them. I can already imagine my children following along the book doing all the different poses as Anna does it.

This was a perfect book to use in the Yoga classes I teach to the 2nd grade. They loved the colorful illustrations and had fun moving through all the yoga poses in the book. However, the best part of the book, in my opinion, was the powerful message: Stay true to who you are and good will follow. I am happy to say that most of the students were able to point out when Anna's classmates were "mean" to her, saying not so nice things behind her back. I also shared this book with a 4th grade student who is hearing impaired and wears two hearing aides, just like Anna. When he made the connection between himself and Anna, his expression was priceless. Overall, the yoga poses were enough for these students to stay engaged to the story and be challenged physically. Thank you for this gift of a book.

A tender, thoughtful, and colorful reflection not only on how a child finds refuge in yoga --- but how children come to appreciate and respect each other. My son and I so enjoy reading this together.
