Product Description: Every living thing in nature has its own inner wisdom. Within a tiny seed is the wisdom of how to grow into a strong tall tree. Birds have the wisdom to fly and spiders innately know how to spin elaborate webs. All of nature contains this innate knowledge and it is not taught, it is simply known. Since we are part of nature, we contain this wisdom as well. Through the use of rhyming verse and 48 pages of brilliant illustrations, parents and children re-discover their wisdom within. Happiness, joy and compassion are our birthright. It is how we always hope to live each day. When we connect to our inner knowing, we are limitless and full of potential. At the end of the story, there are child-friendly, illustrated yoga poses and mindful meditations relating to the elements of nature contained in the story. Parents are provided with an easy to use guide to introduce movement, breath and meditation to their child in a fun, creative and interactive way. A book for all ages. A message for a lifetime.

Here’s what I love about this book:
- Wonderful positive message that kids of ALL abilities should hear! I am especially excited to have this book in my toolbox of things to use in my work as a pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist and Kids Yoga Teacher at the JD McCarty Center for Children with Developmental Disabilities. Many of the kids we see struggle with self confidence & anxiety related to their special needs.
- Beautiful rhyming text with just a few words in a large easy-to-read font on each page.
- Lovely colorful hand drawn illustrations on each 2-page spread.
- The size of the book will make it easy to use even in group settings.
- There are no religious connotations and the illustrations of people depict diversity which allow this book to be used in a wide range of settings.
- 9 kids yoga poses are included at the end of the book with photos and kid-friendly instructions. As a SLP, I love how the author includes extension questions for each pose to get kids thinking as they are moving!
- 2 short guided relaxation scripts are included at the end of the book (“I Am Happy” & “Amazing Me”).
