Review: ABC Yoga

ABC Yoga is a delightful board book that encourages you and your young child to explore yoga together. 

Children love to learn through movement and ABC Yoga is a fun way to learn the alphabet and animal names while copying the simplified yoga positions. 

Each letter is shown on its own page, accompanied by a little rhyme and a simple illustration of the word and the yoga pose. On the letter 'b'  page the word is 'butterfly' and the child sits in a shape like a butterfly illustrating the yoga position, cobbler pose.
Who's that fluttering by?
Join your hands and feet.
And smile at the butterfly.'

Sometimes the letter and the pose represent an object instead of an animal. These objects are ones children will be familiar with eg: the moon for the crescent moon pose. 

At the end of the book Christiane Engel  has included an explanation of what is yoga and a list of yoga poses featured in the book. 

ABC Yoga will stimulate your child's body, mind and spirit while learning the alphabet in an unique way.
