"Great book with many teaching opportunities. From teaching science, social studies, vocabulary, sequencing, and incorporating yoga this book has it all. Great book to use in any classroom. Even though is for kids up to age 7, I think even kids as old at 10 and 11 may enjoy reading it and doing yoga at the same time. I love teaching with yoga and my students love it too."- Jolanta
