Hands to Heart: Breathe and Bend with Animal Friends
A yoga and mindfulness picture book that encourages young readers to breathe, slow down, and move into various gentle and playful poses as they ease into a practice of meditation.
With a gentle reminder for children to breathe and to connect their bodies, this beautifully illustrated picture book contains a sweet cast of animal friends to guide young readers from one yoga pose to the next.
From reaching your hands up to the sky to stretching like a cat to pressing up like a cobra snake, each posture helps to control breathing, engage in the present moment, and ultimately lead towards calmness and peacefulness. The soothing, rhythmic text paired with illustrations that offer a lot of sweet humor make this book perfect for young readers ready to interact with yoga poses and practice mindfulness.
