Description: Itsy Bitsy Yoga for Toddlers and Preschoolers: 8-Minute Routines to Help Your Child Grow Smarter, Be Happier, and Behave Better is a book for adults who are interested in how yoga can help toddlers.

Use: Librarians and teachers can use the yoga routines provided in the text for preschool and toddler storytimes. Routines or moves from the text can be incorporated into storytime as a way to get kids up and moving, much like some rhymes, songs, and fingerplays. Librarians/teachers can also booktalk the book to interested adults, and put it on display. Some of the activities within may also be adapted for programs for teens and adults who are differently-abled.
