Happy 4th of July!
I’m very excited about the giveaway I have for you today! It is one of a series of yoga-inspired books for kids aged 3-8, written by Giselle Shardlow of Kids Yoga Stories, and it comes just in time for the beach :)

When you can’t enjoy the book at the beach, the park is a close second!

I practice yoga myself (at least I do when I have the time, so can you still call it a practice?) and can personally attest to the wonders it works on connecting body to mind, keeping both fit and peaceful. I’ve tried to include Sprout 1 in my (sporadic) practice, but found it sometimes hard to transition from upward facing dog to downward facing dog with a preschooler on my back!!

I knew he liked it though, and I’ve been on the lookout for good resources, so I was thrilled to be offered the chance to review Giselle’s most recent book, Luke’s Beach Day. And I’m happy to say I was not disappointed, and neither was Sprout 1!

Luke’s Beach Day is, as you may have guessed, the story of a little Australian boy named Luke who goes on a field trip with his friends to the Beach. The book is available in both English and Spanish. The story itself has a very strong, but not preachy, environmental focus and stands well on it’s own as a picture book.

However, the great thing about this book is how Giselle seamlessly weaves yoga right in as Luke and his friends do poses related to the storyline. The book is quite engaging and Sprout1 was excited to do the poses alongside Luke. The main character being a boy just makes it more appealing to me as the mom of two boys. Too often you see only girls depicted in yoga products for children – it’s quite refreshing to see a boy as the main character of a yoga book . But if a girl yogi is what you’re after, check out the other Kids Yoga Stories books as well.

Great demonstrations and sequences at the back. I want this one Mom!

In addition to the little call-outs with the yoga poses throughout the story, you will find an entire list of poses at the end, along with an explanation on the proper way to sequence them and how to best introduce them to your child(ren).

Ah… Resting Pose

There is an excellent guide to the book at the end explaining ways to use this book with children. This can be especially useful if you are a newbie yourself, but is also useful if you practice yoga yourself but are unsure how to introduce it to children.

All in all, Luke’s Beach Day is a wonderful way to introduce children to not only yoga, but to the Australian beach and caring for the environment as well. The story is just the right size for my 4yo, and the call-outs with little drawings if the yoga poses are perfect for attracting children’s attention to them. I was very pleased to find the sequencing of the yoga poses was well laid out and the tips for parents and teachers at the end of the book is a wonderful resource, whether you are using this book at home or in a class setting. This is definitely a book I would recommend!
