Jungle Yoga – Oh Yeah!
Having visited the Amazon rainforest while living in Brazil many years ago I was excited to receive a copy of Sophia’s Jungle Adventure by Giselle Shardlow. Flipping through it quickly, I loved the colorful illustrations and the corresponding inset yoga pose on each page. Upon further reading, I found a creative, interactive, educational book perfect for 3-8 year olds.
Sophia’s Jungle Adventure has an eco-friendly theme great for use in classrooms. This book is a fabulous way to learn about the rainforest and incorporate yoga poses (hooray for kineasthetic learning). Giselle also provides 20 ways to jazz up your jungle journey on her website.
The pre-school groups (ages 2-5) I teach loved the book. Their favorite poses were Alligator and Monkey. Which was perfect as we played 5 Little Monkeys after reading the book through twice (the first time to familiarize ourselves with the story line, the second time adding in the yoga poses). This twice through sequence is recommended in the useful Parent-Teacher Guide at the back of the book.
Giselle has done a wonderful job of combining her educational expertise, enthusiasm for yoga and love of children into a useable and enjoyable children’s yoga book. I will get lots of use out of Sophia’s Jungle Adventure and can’t wait for next Kids Yoga Stories book about the Australian beach.
