Arch Stretch Crouch A flexible, well-balanced menagerie teaches kids how to do basic, animal-inspired poses in this innovative, colorful introduction to yoga. An illustrated glossary of the Sanskrit names for the animal poses is included in a final spread.

A dozen yoga poses are conveyed by illustrations, which show a child doing the pose within each animal silhouette. This art uniquely captures the relationship between the animal pose and the child's version of the position:

Stretch like a cat, high off your mat.
Snuggle like a rabbit--make it a habit.
Rise like a cobra, now you're doing yoga
