Polly's Perfect Pet

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."
"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."
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.
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.
