Review & A Way To Give Giveaway: Luke’s Beach Day from Kids Yoga Stories

Product Description:  

Give Your Children the Healthy Benefits of Yoga with this Kids Yoga Stories Adventure Book. Join Luke’s beach adventure. Hop like a kangaroo, perch like a sea gull, and rest like a sea star as you act out this journey on an East Coast Australian beach. What else might you see? Learn something new, explore movement, and have fun together! Kids Yoga Stories introduce you to engaging characters who will get your child laughing, moving, and creating. Reading is good for the mind AND body! The story links several yoga poses in a specific sequence to create a coherent and meaningful story. This book for ages 4 to 8 is more than a storybook, but it’s also a unique experience for children.

Here’s what I love about the book:
  • Great eco-friendly theme as Luke & his friends clean up along the way in their adventure at the beach!
  • Each page in the book includes the targeted pose in bold font in the text & a picture of the pose in the top corner. This makes it easy to keep the flow in a kids yoga storytime especially for those who are new to yoga and may not know all the poses. Additional details are provided in the back of the book.
  • There are 18 poses in the book. Plenty to fill most kids yoga classes for the targeted age range (4-8 year olds). For a longer class, you could add poses for other animals or things you might see in the ocean or at a beach and talk about eco-friendly choices to extend the theme. Suggestions are provided in the book.
  • The Kids Yoga Stories Guide section at the end of the book is full of great tips for setting up a fun & safe yoga storytime for kids. Love this: “Ooze creativity, imagination and abundance. Encourage each child to tap into his or her own creativity and imagination through movement and breath. Welcome quiet times for reflection. Pause often. Remember, it’s not the end result, but the journey where miracles happen…“. Giselle’s passion and love for kids shines through :)
  • Love the inclusion of Savasana at the end of the book.
  • The book has bright colorful illustrations & a nice easy-to-read font size.
  • The book is available in English & Spanish versions.

  1. This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the winner: Diana Gassen, a teacher at Cherry Creek School District Early Childhood in Centennial, Colorado. Her winning entry: “I have a child I work with, named Luke, who has cerebral palsy. Doing yoga in my preschool class I have seen him grow and develop so much. It would be fantastic if I could a routine with this book for him….what a special way to make his day!”. The “A Way to Give” winner nominated by Diana: “Deidre Hoefler would benefit greatly. She is a new preschool teacher in my district and was in a professional development training I facilitated last year around yoga in ECE inclusive classrooms. While at first she did not want to really be in our group (“I don’t know anything about yoga.”) through the year she developed a deep understanding of it’s importance and how it can help all students.
    She enjoyed our Professional Learning so much she is now teaching in the same school as myself to be mentored a bit more on yoga in the classroom.”

    Other entry comments include:

    * I love reading to my 3 month old!

    Thanks to everyone who participated! Be watching for another fun review & giveaway on OMazing Kids soon 🙂
