Review quote

Basil Hello Switzerland - Hatha yoga poses imitate many things children love to incorporate into pretend play. The Yoga Game is a gentle introduction to yoga that combines the poses with riddles about which animal each represents. It can be enjoyed on many levels, playing with the rhymes or in combination with an actual yoga practice. The bright, bold illustrations show clearly how to place your body into each position, and the book includes background information about yoga, its origins and how to start.
