It's a perfect day for yoga, and Bunny is practicing his poses and wishes his friends would do yoga with him! But Lizard is too tired, Fox is in a rush, and Bird has the hiccups. Will Bunny ever be able to get his friends to slow down and realize that yoga just might be the solution to their problems?
Akin to I Am Yoga by Susan Verde, Yoga Bunny helps readers relax and unwind as they learn beginning yoga poses, from downward dog to tree pose. Debut author-illustrator Brian Russo shows readers just how relaxing yoga can be.
Although the narrative doesn’t always make sense, and there isn’t much action propelling the story, YOGA BUNNY will have some appeal for its intended age group and the illustrations will prompt readers to give the poses a try. The charming endpapers detail many of those poses (as performed by Yoga Bunny).
The book ends with “Some Facts About Yoga,” and the writing in this section is incomplete and a bit disjointed. That said, most toddlers and preschoolers probably won’t get to that part, so it’s not enough to stop me from recommending the book.
