Overview
Kids love yoga--and it's great for them, so much so that the President's Council has added the practice to the fitness activities in the annual President's Challenge. For parents and caregivers looking for a fun and effective new routine for bedtime, innovative educator Mariam Gates presents Good Night Yoga, a playful yet wholly practical book for preparing for sleep.

This beautifully illustrated, full-color book tells the story of the natural world as it closes down for the night, while teaching children a simple flow of yoga postures inspired by their favorite characters from nature. Moving from "Sun Breath" to "Cloud Gathering" to "Ladybug & Butterfly" and more, readers learn techniques for self-soothing, relaxing the body and mind, focusing attention, and other skills that will support restful sleep and improve overall confidence and well-being.

In a clear and calming introduction to yoga, serene children demonstrate 11 basic poses, while a lullaby winds throughout: “The sun in the sky is going down/ and the clouds float by./ The stars sparkle brightly/ as the moon rises high,” writes first-time author Gates.” Newcomer Hinder’s acrylic paintings show a brown-skinned girl wearing a polka-dotted outfit as she performs a ladybug pose, while a boy takes on a cat pose. Gentle supplemental text describes the poses (“As I breathe in, as I breathe out, I arch my back like a cat”), which come together in a closing spread to create the “Good Night Yoga Flow.” Ages 4–8. (Apr.)
