About the Book: 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.
About the Illustrator: Matthew Rivera earned his bachelor's degree in fine arts from the University of Arizona. After many years of being an art director for agencies, corporations, and toymakers, Matthew now writes and illustrates stories for children. For more, see matthewdidit.com.
