Description: Meet Dogi, a bright yellow dog who enjoys yoga. In this book, Dogi introduces children to a variety of different yoga poses; including the wheel pose, lion pose, and shivasana. Each pose is accompanied by a drawing of Dogi doing the pose, as well as rhyming text that explains the pose and its benefits.
Uses: The bright pictures, and simple, rhyming text of Dogi the Yogi make it an ideal resource for introducing children to yoga in a group storytime. Librarians and teachers can read each page, and lead children through the different poses along with Dogi. This book would also be well used in a family storytime, so that librarians and teachers can teach both parents and children yoga together. Dogi the Yogi’s inviting cover will also make this book ideal for display.
