Review & Mobile-Friendly Giveaway: Waiting for Dad ~ A Yoga Story for Kids

New mobile-friendly giveaway on OMazing Kids! Enter to win this new kids yoga book ……

Product Description:  Waiting for Dad – A Yoga Story for Kids. Rob is the last child to be picked up by his father from school! He starts to imagine what his dad might be up to.  Maybe he’s in a jungle? With pirates? In outer space?  Join Rob and become part of the story by becoming tigers, a camel and even the moon.  This book uses traditional yoga poses in a flowing and fun sequence. Children will increase their body awareness, strength and fitness and most of all, have fun.

Here’s what I love about the book:

  • The main character in the story is a boy & the book includes pirates, tigers, ninjas, a bomb squad soldier, aliens, sharks, monsters, etc. …… it’s nice to see another kids yoga product that will specifically appeal to boys.
  • Simple colorful illustrations.
  • Large easy-to-read text.
  • Photos & instructions for each pose are included on each facing page. This makes it very user-friendly for folks who may not be familiar with yoga poses & the inclusion of the pose pictures will help kids who are visual learners or who have motor planning difficulties see what they need to do to make their body be like the item in the story.
  • Included “belly breathing” as a calming technique for when a child is worried.

New Mobile-Friendly Entry:

  • Only entries with all required information will be valid. See the Rafflecopter entry form for details.
  • Helpful Info & Tips: Folks had requested a simpler mobile-friendly entry option. After researching all the “free” options I could find, I’ve decided to try Rafflecopter. I tried it out on my iPhone and it appears to work. In the event that you experience difficulties with the Rafflecopter entry form, please e-mail me specific details so I can attempt to fix it. E-mail to: . The entry deadline may be extended at the sole discretion of OMazing Kids in the event of prolonged entry problems.
  • Each “giveaway” is handled separately on OMazing Kids. So there are no rules prohibiting previous winners from entering this or future giveaways. I really do read every entry in every giveaway carefully to insure that the products end up in the best hands to impact kids lives.
  • In order to simplify the entry process, I have eliminated the “A Way to Give” portion….. unfortunately few folks were interested in going through the extra steps to do so.

Entry Deadline: 11:59pm CST on September 16, 2013.

  • Comments submitted via entries may be copied & pasted into the blog post.
  • Odds of winning will depend on the number of eligible entries received.
  • Only entries with all required information will be valid. See the Rafflecopter entry form for details.
  • The winner will be chosen from valid entries on September 17, 2013. NOTE: Even though I am using Rafflecopter, I will still be hand selecting winners to insure products end up in the hands of folks who will put them to the best use. Briefly tell me how winning this would help you & the kids. I take the time to read each entry so details count. It doesn’t have to be lengthy…. just heart-felt.

After I e-mail the winner’s info to the company, it is their responsibility to mail out prizes. Please contact them first if you are concerned about not receiving a prize. If that does not resolve the problem, then feel free to e-mail me and I will glad to assist in whatever way I can.
