Author information

Kathy Beliveau has always loved nature, writing and pretty much anything that feeds the soul. Kathy's relationship with yoga began as a preteen and has continued to develop over the years. She has studied Children's Yoga and is a Certified Yoga Instructor. As well, Kathy writes for children and adults and has enjoyed recognition in contests and literary magazines. Her stories have entertained primary grades and preschools; they have been performed by a storybook theatre and used by special needs programs. In a light and playful style, her stories connect kids with nature; they connect people to the planet; and they connect body, mind and spirit. Kathy lives on Vancouver Island, BC, with her husband, youngest daughter and several cats. www.kathybeliveau.caFarida Zaman has a passion for art and design.

Review quote

"Thank you for sharing your insight and your light in this way. It is a beautiful introduction and practice for children and their caregivers. I just know that it will guide and inspire many people. Your sequences are wonderful, and the rhymes are fun and thought-provoking, as well as instructional." - Irene Bilton, Educational Assistant and Wellness Practitioner "This book will be such a treat for parents, grandparents and teachers to read to their young people. And because of the delightful rhymes and invitation to action, budding readers will want to 'read' it to their friends!" - Patti Woolsey, Teacher and Yoga Instructor "Here is a well-thought-out collection of yoga poses to inspire and guide young children through fun sessions of yoga in class. Neither text nor illustrations talk down to them but stretch their reading and thinking skills to come up with good responses to the ever-present question, 'Who am I?' There is ample room to challenge each other or to follow the demonstrations. With the advent of full-day kindergarten classes, The Yoga Game may well become a fine source for meaningful exercise and calming breathing exercises to fill the school day in a very positive way and encourage forays into reading as well." - Anne Forester, Co-author of The Learner's Way
