It is important to mention that both titles are board books (the hard cardboard that is your baby’s first book or for the toddler still a little rough on books). Total there might be 20 or 25 pages in both. Therefore, by no means are these hard to read books for the adult. I only mention them here as they are something I am unfamiliar with. Part of the yoga craze for the under four set. Yes, Yoga craze. There are many books about yoga (I have reviewed a few before), teaching yoga and meditation stories for children. These titles fall into the show your child how to do some basic yoga poses/teaching yoga.
Lucky kids are flexible (I flinched thinking about the Half-moon, mourned my lost ability to do The Butterfly and laughed at the fact a child I knew once did The Child and did not realize he was doing it as he was dead asleep to the world and I was laughing at his diapered bum being stuck up in the air….)
Sarah Jane Hinder’s illustrations for both are delightful and the perfect addition to the text to show how these poses are done. Both also make for a fun read-aloud as well as teaching tools for the parent who wishes to do some yoga with their younger children. The colors are bright and bold, yet for the bedtime one, also soothing.
Some overlap does occur with the poses. However, both titles are unique enough that you will want both titles for your collection. A great gift for a baby shower, first birthday or an any time book. Yoga Bug perhaps was my personal favorite but Good Night Yoga also was pleasant.
