Longtime readers of this blog know that I have a passion for teaching kids about the world. My bloggy friend Giselle of Kids Yoga Stories shares this passion, as well as a love of yoga! Giselle guest posted for my world culture for kids series a while back, sharing yoga poses to go along with famous Australian landmarks and Australian icons. She also writes delightful children’s books that weave world culture and yoga for kids together! Today I want to write about one of these books: The ABC’s of Australian Animals.
This is like many other animal ABC books written for children, but with the added bonus of yoga poses! All of my kids love Giselle’s books (we have several, and love them all!), but seven-year-old Emma especially enjoys reading through the books and trying out the various poses.
My other kids are a little young to figure out the poses on their own, but we enjoy reading the books and trying these simple yoga moves together as a family. I love that my kids are learning about the world, developing a love for yoga, and reading at the same time. What a winning combination!
Giselle has kindly offered a copy of this book for a reader of my blog – and, in true global awareness fashion, she is willing to ship anywhere in the world! To enter, simply leave a comment on this post telling me which of her other books you think your kids would enjoy, and fill out the Google form below:
This giveaway has now ended. Congratulations, Jenna O.!
Which Australian animal do you love? I adore koala bears, and have a crochet pattern for one that I need to get made up, one of these days!
Giselle kindly gave us a copy of her book. I wrote this post because I love her books, and I think you will too. All opinions are my own.
