3.0 out of 5 stars a basic introduction to yoga 27 April 2014
By 2swedes
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A lovely book. My kids have really enjoyed this - 4 & 7 boy & girl. Good range of straightforward poses with a simple guide to how you do them. My kids enjoy showing me the poses and we have a good laugh together. I highly recommend this book. We followed up with kids love yoga too DVD and I found my little girl already had a sound knowledge of the names of the moves and an interest in it. My boy (7) is very sporty and flexible - the story is too simple for him but he got straight into the moves - I think it would work better in the 3 to 6 age range
