Does all of this cold weather have anyone in the mood to go escape to a warm beach? Anyone have cooped up kids that need to get moving? We have the perfect book for you!
Kids Yoga Stories generously donated a copy of the book Luke’s Beach Day that we are happy to offer one reader a chance to win! This is a unique children’s book that combines many yoga poses into a story about care for the beach. Each page includes an illustration of a yoga pose that is easy to mimic for adults and children. A parent/teacher guide is also included at the end of the book.
We know that young children can do yoga because in August, our book club collaborated with Kids Yoga Stories to lead our 2-year olds in yoga at the park. For some, this was their first exposure to yoga, others have been doing yoga since they were at an even younger age.
Luke’s Beach Day would make an excellent book to feature at your own Baby/Toddler Book Club! Your activity is essentially worked into the book itself. Just have your toddlers do yoga with you as guided by the story. We’ll even give you an idea for a “beach in a cup” snack to go with the book and activity (snack not included in giveaway): take a clear plastic cup, layer blueberries at the bottom (water), followed by a thin layer of plain or vanilla yogurt (waves), topped with crushed up graham crackers or other light brown crackers (sand). Now you are ready to host a Baby/Toddler Book Club meeting!
Ok, do you we have you convinced that you want your own free copy of the book? Here’s how to enter: Leave a comment on this post with the name of a children’s book that you would like to see us feature at a future Baby Toddler Book Club meeting.
