Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Well before yoga became fashionable via Sting and Madonna, the elephant king Babar and all the residents of Celesteville were finding peace and tranquillity through yoga. And now elephants everywhere can join them!Through easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step illustrations, Babar's Yoga for Elephants presents 15 positions and stretches as well as helpful breathing exercises. The book also provides useful advice on what to do with your trunk while in position, a dilemma that human yoga books often ignore.Written by Babar himself, the book explains how yoga was introduced to Celesteville and how he and Queen Celeste keep fit doing yoga on their many travels. Babar's Yoga for Elephants is sure to become a classic for elephants as well as their human friends.

Horn Book Review

This yoga primer, narrated by the king himself and ostensibly written for elephants, capably introduces some basic poses and stretches. In the second half, Babar talks about yoga in Celesteville and around the world: We did Downward-Facing Dog in front of the Louvre museum. The picture book format and familiar characters will appeal more to younger children. The book's intended audience of independent readers may find the detailed text daunting.
