An illustrated picture book offering a playful introduction to yoga through dinosaurs.
The latest yoga picture book from bestselling author Mariam Gates introduces children to the joys and benefits of yoga—through dinosaurs! Triceratops, Pterodactyl, T-Rex, and others learn to bend, stretch, and breathe through a yoga flow. Instead of being sad, mad, or frustrated when things aren’t going their way, the dinosaurs practice yoga to feel better. The book features a parents’ guide to the depicted postures and a glossary of dinosaurs at the back.
As the creator of the celebrated Kid Power Yoga, Gates knows that teaching children yoga sets them up for better habits of flexibility, fitness, and self-soothing. With Dinosaur Yoga, kids can stomp, stretch, and snort their way to skills that will serve them for a lifetime.

This book is an ultimate story-time favorite of mine. The book starts innocently enough when on the first page- a dragon egg begins to hatch! But be careful- this is one ticklish dragon! And dragons sneeze fire when tickled! Suddenly, the book is engulfed in adorable, yet ferocious, flame as readers must join together in helping put the flames out. Each page turn and colorful illustration presents the reader with an opportunity to participate and laugh along with this fantastic and delightful book! The board book version is perfect for toddlers but the hardcover version is great for sharing. -Reviewed by Maddi
