I Love Yoga (Yoga for Kids)

BY Mary Kaye Chryssicas (Author)

Reading level: Ages 5 and up

48 pages

Publisher: DK CHILDREN (October 31, 2005)

From School Library Journal Grade 2-5 Chryssicas takes readers through a typical hatha yoga class, following six children and their teacher through basic breathing, stretching, and balancing exercises. The lesson begins with the equipment, then moves to the purpose of yoga, to warm-ups, and more challenging poses. Spreads are filled with photos of smiling children, surrounded by descriptive text and captions. Small inset pictures of two or three positions and their variations guide readers through the movements. Basic terminology is covered in the glossary. An appealing and helpful guide. Janice C. Hayes, Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. From Booklist Gr. 3-5, younger for reading aloud. In a book similar in format to Naia Bray-Moffatt's I Love Gymnastics (2005), Chryssicas, who teaches yoga to children at her Massachusetts studio, offers a vicarious tour of a typical class. Opening spreads discuss equipment, clothing, and camaraderie among the young learners. Later spreads showcase poses, grouped according to their desired impact on the body: "Hip Openers" and "Lift Up Your Heart," for example. The layouts, featuring many small inset photos pasted over larger images, are cluttered, and beginners looking for a specific sequence of poses and full instruction on breathing through the asanas may need further guidance. Still, the mostly sharp, clear photos of accomplished kids having fun (there's a final section on games) may inspire some children to dip into their first "Downward Dog," while others will marvel at yoga's mental benefits: "I pretend my thoughts are clouds and watch them float away," says a young boy. Also suggest Thia Luby's Children's Book of Yoga (1998) or, for young adults, Evan Cooper's Um, Like . . . OM: A Girl Goddess's Guide to Yoga (2005). Gillian Engberg
