Emily’s Day in the desert

Unique book. I like that Emily was prepared for her trip with her parents. She had a list of things she was hoping to see. It would be more helpful if there were opening, games, breath work and music suggestions to help use this book as a theme but to be able to make it a 45 minute class.

Yay for Emily's Day in the Desert! As a children & family yoga teacher it is great to see a book that unites storytelling, yoga, & learning and also has diverse characters. I work in Chicago with inner-city children & families and it is always nice when I can find or recommend a resource that my students can see themselves in. My students had so much fun going on the desert adventure with Emily & searching for the roadrunner on each page! I also love the variety of poses in this book; Giselle takes you through standing poses, balance, seated and ends with a lovely breathing exercise before the final resting pose. The resources at the end of the book are perfect for parent or teacher to review the pose list, animal names, learn more in-depth instructions for moving your body into the poses and delving deeper into yogic principals or breath, body awareness, & meditation.

Giselle Shardlow's story incorporates the desert biome with yoga moves. This very engaging story is about a little girl and her family exploring the desert. Being from the Northeast, I thought this book gave my daughter an idea about this habitat. The illustrations and story are realistic. Besides using it at home, as a Primary Montessori teacher, this book is perfect for an introduction to the desert. Highly recommend for teachers and parents!

This is an engaging story matched with fun yoga poses. My students loved copying the movements during the story and later without the story. Having a digital copy allowed me to save a copy of the book in iBooks and project it onto the screen for all the children to see clearly.

Saint Patrick’s Day cards

Awesome ! I used in my St.Pattys day themes class and the kids LOVED them and they helped me create an easy story featuring the different Irish themed animals, instrument, and people. Super Cool ... I plan to buy many many more !

Fantastic Book

My weekly class loves the story and asks me to read it all the time!!

Just What We Needed!

We use the Zoo Animal Yoga cards in our classroom of elementary kids with autism. We read books with animal characters and then retell the stories with our yoga moves. It's super fun and interactive.

Chinese New Year Yoga Cards for Kids

These cards were exactly what I was looking for and the poses were easy to follow and so much fun for my kids! I look forward to doing this activity again next year.

Australia Yoga Cards for Kids

It is hard to find Australian related content in programs for kids, particularly on the internet so I was delighted to find the Australia Yoga Cards For Kids that I can incorporate into my program and thereby make it more relevant to my students.
Thanks Giselle
