Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

An eagle soaring among the clouds or a star twinkling in the night sky . . . a camel in the desert or a boat sailing across the sea--yoga has the power of transformation. Not only does it strengthen bodies and calm minds, but with a little imagination, it can show us that anything is possible. New York Times bestselling illustrator Peter H. Reynolds and author and certified yoga instructor Susan Verde team up again in this book about creativity and the power of self-expression. I Am Yoga encourages children to explore the world of yoga and make room in their hearts for the world beyond it. A kid-friendly guide to 17 yoga poses is included.

"Includes a guide to 16 yoga poses to strengthen, calm, and inspire"--Jacket back.

As a young girl practices various standard yoga poses, she imagines herself as a tree touching the sky, a playful dog, a warrior, and more while relaxing and seeing how she fits into the world.

Horn Book Review

A girl navigating modern-day stresses practices various yoga poses to calm her body and mind. One or two sentences are paired with each pose: e.g., for boat, "I can sail on the sea. / I go with the flow." The brief positive affirmations and soothing illustrations are an exercise in mindfulness. The appended instructional author's note provides detailed information about the poses. (c) Copyright 2016.
