My Daddy is a Pretzel
Written by Baron Baptiste, illustrated by Sophie Fatus
Within the yoga class concept, children are encouraged to talk about what their parents do each day. Simple to follow, colorful drawings and rhyming verse illustrate yoga positions that link to each profession – the gardener leads to a description of the Vrksasana or Tree Pose, the Vet to the Dog Pose Adho Mukha-Svanasana, the Architect to the Triangle Pose Trikonasana…to name a few.
My Daddy is a Pretzel illustrates the direct relationship between everyday life and healthy living through yoga. The author’s introduction along with the Tips for Young Yogis at the end of the book are well worth reading.
New @ the Library. You can find My Daddy is a Pretzel in the Children’s Library with the Easiest Reader Picture Books in EB.
