More Snowy Faves: “A Perfect Day” by Carin Berger, kids yoga ideas and a snowy playlist

“A Perfect Day” by Carin Berger from HarperCollins Children’s Books / Greenwillow Books is lovely! Beautiful illustrations with interesting details such as graph paper, receipts & handwritten notes hidden in the collage background. Short, easy to read text. Lots of opportunities for kids yoga & great descriptive language….. this book is going to be fun to use in OMazing Kids yoga & my work as a SLP at the Jd McCarty Center for Children With Developmental Disabilities! ♥  I bought my copy online at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/A-Perfect-Day-Carin-Berger/dp/006201580X
