Rob is the last child to be picked up by his father from school! He starts to imagine what his dad might be up to.
Maybe he’s in a jungle? With pirates? In outer space?
This book uses fun yoga routine that energizes your child. Imagining pirates, tigers and aliens can make things exciting for children especially when they can roar or call out “Ahoy matey!”

This book uses traditional yoga poses in a flowing and fun sequence. Children will increase their body awareness, strength and fitness and most of all, have fun.


Excerpt:






I loved this book. It was so cute and I loved the Yoga poses. I think kids will have a lot of fun with this, learning a fun way to get up and move, plus I think it's a great tool for parents to use to discuss, and participate in these poses with their kids. 

Awesome book. Get it. Read it to your kids. Do Yoga with your kids.
