Read full description of the books:
Bright, cheerful illustrations make this book a great choice for teachers and parents of young children who want to encourage their charges to be physically active.
The book shows and describes a variety of fun yoga poses based on different animals. Young readers are encouraged to try the poses for themselves and to use their imaginations by pretending they are the animals who inspire the poses.
All of the poses described seem fairly easy to do, and are ones that many of the adult readers might be familiar with, such as the dog, snake and cat poses. The lion pose (sitting on your heels, and sticking out your tongue) and frog pose (squatting down then jumping) are poses that I can see being particular favourites with young readers due to their fun and somewhat silly nature.
The only real negative point I can think of is that twice in the text, the author uses the word "Namaste" , but at no point is there a definition for the word or explanation as to what it means. Even a footnote in with the publisher info would have been nice.
Illustrations are Linoleum block prints, pencil drawings & photoshop.

Read information about the authorTaeeun Yoo was born in Korea and grew up in Seoul in her grandfather's beautiful garden-house. She was raised in a large traditional family with nine members and remembers many fun stories. Growing up, she watched her great-grandmother make traditional Korean costumes, and watched her grandfather carefully observe his orchids and bonsai. Now her grandfather often appears in her illustrations.
She studied Korean brush painting at Hong Ik University in Korea, and moved to New York to attend graduate school in illustration at The School of Visual Arts. While she studied in graduate school, she was influenced by one of her teachers, Bruce Waldman, a famous etcher. She made her first children's book using etching. Her work has appeared in Cricket, Ladybug, and The New York Times. Her first picture book, The Little Red Fish will be published by Dial Books for Young Readers in 2007. She is currently working on The Umbrella Queen by Shirin Yim Bridges, to be published by Greenwillow Books, and Only a Witch Can Fly by Alison McGhee, forthcoming from Feiwel & Friends. Taeeun lives in New York City and enjoys walking on the streets, listening to street musicians, and drawing on location.
