{OMazing Kids Book Review, kids yoga ideas & free coloring sheet} “My Leaf Book” by Monica Wellington



 Yippee! You all know what a huge fan I am of Monica Wellington’s books so I was thrilled to get a copy of her new release “My Leaf Book”. Autumn is my favorite season. Cooler weather, apples, pumpkins & the gorgeous colors of the changing leaves. “Apple Farmer Annie” welcomes Leaf Girl in “My Leaf Book” as a fabulous new addition to my OMazing Kids collection of  favorite fall books


Here are a few pics of interior pages to give you a feel for the book. I love that even the end sheets are illustrated & that kid-friendly leaf facts and ideas for leaf craft projects are included!












Opportunities for kids yoga: tree, leaf, gate, upward facing dog, basket, bird, squirrel (toe-ga with brown pom poms), gyan mudra looking glasses, book, forward fold (to pick leaves off ground), standing star, blowing wind breath with small leaves, palming (for leaf rubbing), weeping willow (crescent moon), forest of trees group pose, heart mudra, heart affirmations, heart guided relaxation, etc.. Would be fun to add leaf rubbing, leaf stamping & other leaf-themed crafts. In addition to those listed in the book, there are lots of cool leaf craft ideas on this post!


About the book: With her trademark bold, graphic style Monica Wellington has created a picture book about autumn, trees, and leaves.  When the seasons change, a young girl visits the arboretum to collect fallen leaves and make a book with them. Brilliant illustrations show each variety of tree the girl encounters, from the common oak to the lesser known gingko.  Spreads silhouetting leaves up-close help young children learn to identify them. Like the girl in the book, young readers will be eager to make their very own leaf books.
