Moosely Marvelous 1K Giveaway on OMazing Kids Yoga

Wow! It’s so fun to see 1000+ folks enjoying & sharing a love of kids yoga and other kid-related and special needs related things on the OMazing Kids Yoga Facebook page.

To celebrate, I have decided to do a giveaway that involves several of my favorite things all rolled into one…..

  • a unique kids picture book with amazing illustrations + a message of affirmation + lots of animals with the main character being my “fave” + printables + music = tons of kids fun   🙂

My favorite animal is the Moose….. I literally have hundreds of moose items (plush, books, games, socks, T’s, PJ’s, art, figurines, dishes, quilts, music ….. the list goes on & on). The Moose “high interest/passion” started when I was a kid watching Bullwinkle.

Here’s the “Moosely Marvelous” giveaway to celebrate the 1K milestone:

  • Agate: What Good Is A Moose? – book
  • Moose Mambo – mp3
  • The Happy Moose Jam – mp3
  • Land of the Silver Birch – mp3
  • Wood Over Water – mp3

To see more about the products:

Agate: What Good Is A Moose? – book:

A great short video from the author & illustrator:

Agate the Moose suffers from low self-esteem, always comparing himself to his sparkling friends, named for birthstones. In the end, they help Agate to see that he, too, is a beautiful gem, a secret jewel. I love, love, LOVE this book! It has wonderful illustrations, descriptive vocabulary, is full of animals that fit with yoga poses/activities, shows the power of kind words & friends, etc…

Here are the opportunities for yoga poses in the book: alligator, elephant, penguin (mountain – then waddle), giraffe, lion, monkey (chest taps), bear (bear crawl, waltzing to 1-2-3 beat, sleeping bear – child’s pose), porcupine (padma/lotus mudra – http://www.yogacheryl.com/images/m_padma_mudra.jpg), hippo (happy baby & rock-n-roll), racoon (gyan mudra at eyes – like the mask on a racoon – http://im.rediff.com/getahead/2009/may/29slide5-yoga.jpg), eagle, and bat (lay on back, legs up and crossed, arms crossed).

I bought the book at: http://www.amazon.com/Agate-Moose-Joy-Morgan-Dey/dp/0942235738/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1330195047&sr=8-1

      Thank you sooo much Angela!!! The kids are so happy and the music is perfect for a fun and entertaining yoga!! 🙂

  2. Here are the comments from the entries received via the “Enter Giveaways Here…” tab on the OMazing Kids Yoga Facebook page….. they ALL made me smile 🙂

    * As a kindergarten teacher, my little ones need to be reminded all the color and joy they send into the world. I would use this book to reinforce the concept of sharing all the beauty they have to give!

    * I would use this in a Rocky Mountain themed kids yoga class..or something of the sort. Looks like an amazing book! Looking forward to using it, win or no win. Thanks!

    * Can’t have enough music and books to use in kids yoga classes. Sounds delightful!

    * I will be using this in my kids yoga classes (3-7 yr olds) at the local camp. Would love to win, since the book looks GORGEOUS, and my kids would love it.

    * This is awesome, Angela! I can use this in my yoga classes and I love love gem stones!!

    * I am a health technician at a daycare and we work with special needs children within the Autism spectrum and Down Syndrome. My sole responsibility is to advance and help the progress of their fine and gross motor skills. I do a lot of art with them and recently started to teach Yoga. Using this website has helped me incredibly to design activities that are incredibly useful and functional for them to learn! It has been a great resource for helpful tips and ideas. In this job, I have also been bestowed the task of helping them in their communication skills and a prospective graduate student in the speech language pathology is great learning experience for me. I am learning great amount in the afternoon meetings that I lead using a PowerPoint to present questions and sing a longs that I use to quiz/motivate them to learn. The specific ways that mention specific ways that I will be using this book, music & printables with the children at my Daycare (Jena’s Integrative Therapy or as known as Accessability Medcare , LLC) are that daily I will be able to incorporate them into a useful curriculum that is fun and enjoyable. The children will benefit from activities such as these that are functional, educational, and fun!! I am excited!!!

    * Angela: You did it again! I love this book you are giving away. The illustrations are amazing!! I would love this book to share with my grandchildren. I would also share it with other educators as a wonderful resource tool for them to incorporate some animal poses into their classrooms! Thanks again for sharing this book with us all!

    * I too am obsessed with all things Moose! I teach 3 kids classes a week, and love to incorporate music and books in my classes. I’m always on the lookout for books full of animals.

    * I teach kids yoga to special needs students (ages 3-4) and always use a book. This book looks so beautiful! I also teach kids ages 3-teen and I know my younger kids would love this book. And, selfishly, my own 3 children would love this book as well. It will truly become one of our favorites! I love what you’re doing and have used a few of your sequences and PDF’s. The little yogis I teach all relate so well to storytime yoga that I’ve made up a huge list of books that I’ve used. Thank you for all that you’ve done for our yoga community!
