Description

Time to Buddy Up for Movement, Cooperation, and Imaginative Play

A sailboat skimming across the waves,
A feathery owl,
A tree stretching from earth to sky.
Together, what do we want to become today?

From the creators of Good Night Yoga and Good Morning Yoga comes a beautifully illustrated city adventure that introduces children to the delights and benefits of partner yoga.

Perfect for teaming up with a friend, sibling, parent, or caregiver, each easy practice shows how cooperation helps us to imagine, move, and have fun in a whole new way.

Includes a back-page guide for parents and caregivers, showing how to do each pose and how to connect them into an easy-to-follow flow.

Review quote

"In a companion title to Good Night Yoga and Good Morning Yoga, pairs of peaceful, bright-eyed children from different ethnic backgrounds collaborate on yoga poses, in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings. In one scene, two sets of kids are face to face/ and toes to toes on a sandy beach. At a zoo, children sit back-to-back, mimicking a lizard basking in the sun, as two other children perform a yoga imitation of a pink, sushi-eating octopus in a tank: One small turn and we're an octopus/ swimming silently so as not to cause alarm./ We move slowly underneath the water, / arm after arm after arm. Hinder's cozy, cartoony pictures clearly demonstrate each yoga pose, while offering a celebration of teamwork and cooperation." --Publishers Weekly "Teachers and trained yogis will welcome the return of the diverse cast from Good Morning Yoga (2016) and Good Night Yoga (2015) to introduce playful partner yoga." --Kirkus Reviews "Don't let the playfulness of the illustrations and the simplicity of the narrative mislead you. This is serious yoga instruction, perfectly formatted for a very young audience." --Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight
