Color and be active on this jungle yoga adventureThis complement to Sophia's Jungle Adventure includes a list of kids yoga poses and a parent-teacher guide. Fly like a toucan, slither like a snake, and flutter like a butterfly on this Costa Rican jungle adventure. Age group: 2 to 5.
Here’s what I love about this book & coloring book: Great eco-friendly theme! Sophia & her friends are in an Environment Club at school Each page in the book includes the targeted pose in bold font in the text & a picture of the pose in the top right corner. This makes it easy to keep the flow in a kids yoga storytime especially for those who are new to yoga and may not know all the poses. Additional details are provided in the back of the book. There are 18 poses in the book. Plenty to fill most kids yoga classes for the targeted age range (4-8 year olds). For a longer class, you could add poses for other animals you might see in a jungle and talk about conservation/eco-friendly choices to extend the theme. Suggestions are provided in the book. Each page in the coloring book includes the name of that item in the story, the name of the pose and illustrations of both Sophia doing the pose and some of the elements from that scene in the story. The illustrations and font sizes are large & clear. The Parent-Teacher Guide section at the end of the book & the coloring book are goldmines of great tips for setting up a fun & safe yoga storytime for kids. Gotta share this quote from the end of both books: “Ooze creativity, imagination and abundance. Encourage each child to tap into his or her own creativity and imagination through movement and breath. Welcome quiet times for reflection. Pause often. Remember, it’s not the end result, but the journey where miracles happen…”. Giselle’s passion and love for kids shines through Love the inclusion of Savasana at the end of the book & the idea of Sophia putting her notebook on her belly! The book has bright colorful illustrations & a nice easy-to-read font size. Lots of great vocabulary & descriptive language will make this book fun to use in my work as a SLP See the companion book at: Sophia’s Jungle Adventure Angela Moorad, MS, CCC-SLP, IAYT, RCYP-2 Speech-Language Pathologist Founder of OMazing Kids, LLC – inclusive wellness...
