With simple instructions and bright, clear illustrations, award-winning artist Taeeun Yoo invites children to enjoy yoga by assuming playful animal poses. And she sparks their imagination further by encouraging them to pretend to be the animal - to flutter like a butterfly, hiss like a snake, roar like a lion and more. Yoga is great for kids because it promotes flexibility and focus - and it's relaxing good fun! The charming pictures of children and animals and the lyrical text make this gentle introduction to yoga a book to be treasured.
Taeeun Yoo has illustrated many books for young readers, including "So Many Days" and "Only A Witch Can Fly", both by Alison McGhee. Her first picture book, "The Little Red Fish", was awarded the Society of Illustrators' 2007 Founders Award. Her most recent, "Here Is the Baby", was a "New York Times" Best Illustrated Book. Taeeun studied Korean brush painting at Hong Ik University in South Korea and attended graduate school in illustration at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
