About the Book: An illustrated picture book offering a playful introduction to yoga through dinosaurs.

The latest yoga picture book from bestselling author Mariam Gates introduces children to the joys and benefits of yoga--through dinosaurs! Triceratops, Pterodactyl, T-Rex, and others learn to bend, stretch, and breathe through a yoga flow. Instead of being sad, mad, or frustrated when things aren't going their way, the dinosaurs practice yoga to feel better. The book features a parents' guide to the depicted postures and a glossary of dinosaurs at the back.

As the creator of the celebrated Kid Power Yoga, Gates knows that teaching children yoga sets them up for better habits of flexibility, fitness, and self-soothing. With Dinosaur Yoga, kids can stomp, stretch, and snort their way to skills that will serve them for a lifetime.

Honest, down to earth, and powerful in its simplicity. This stunning letter/poem/note to self is something everyone needs to read. Easy to pick up, quick to finish, and sure to make an impression. I read it and immediately wished I had 50 copies so I could hand it out to everyone I know, plus keep one for myself. - Jessica
