YOGA TOTS: CALM BUNNY
Tessa Strickland, illustrated by Esteli Meza
Charming illustrations and step-by-step instructions take little ones through a soothing series of basic yoga poses. Simple, descriptive language invites young children to pretend to be a bunny and then a snake, moving their bodies into specific yoga poses inspired by these creatures.
