Letter Perfect Poses! ABC Yoga by Christiane Engel
COPY OUR YOGA POSES AS YOU FOLLOW THROUGH THE ALPHABET.
Let the ARMADILLO show you how to curl and stretch.
Sit down crisscross and put the palms of your hand and the soles of your feet together and flutter and flap them like the BUTTERFLY's wings!
Now you've got it! Do a plank like the CROCODILE DOES.
Get down like a DOGGIE! Lunge like an IGUANA!
Christine Engel's ABC Yoga: Join us and the animals out in nature and learn some yoga! (Quarto Press, 2016) takes preschool youngsters through the twenty-six letters of the alphabet as they imitate favorite animals, from the armadillo to the whale and beyond in simple rhyming text and jolly illustrations of animals doing what they do every day, even pigs (who roll in the mud) and ... sharks! It's a fun way to exercise with a group or at home with Mom and learn the names of some interesting animals and their moves, as well as basic yoga positions.
WATCH THE WHALE IN THE SEA. MAKE A BREACH! LET'S COUNT TO THREE.
And to make a day of it, pair this one with Miriam Yates' hit, Good Night Yoga: A Pose-by-Pose Bedtime Story.
