"Young children love to move--and that's a great thing! Because in addition to supporting early learning, storytime can provide young children with opportunities to explore physical movement. The centuries-old contemplative movement practice known as yoga is more than just a passing trend; it can offer physical, emotional, and mental benefits to practitioners of all ages, including young children. And getting started with yoga storytime doesn't require any previous yoga experience. This new book from accomplished library trainer Scherrer shows how to use yoga and movement to create playful, active storytimes"-- Publisher's website.

An all-comprehensive guide to incorporating Yoga and Yoga themes into a storytime! Includes lists of references for songs, rhymes, and books as well as an in-depth chapter on different Yoga poses, and a chapter with entire storytime plans as examples and inspiration! An excellent resource.

Yoga anyone? This book is ideal for teachers, parents and caregivers of preschool children (though adaptable to school age) who would like to incorporate thoughtful movement with songs and poems. I enjoyed the first couple of chapters that introduce yoga and -- a very brief history, and then yoga's benefits -- particularly self-management. This book provides helpful information for newbies wanting to establish a yoga movement/yoga story time at the school or library. It also provides illustrations of poses and suggested books, songs and poems to accompany each pose.
