Description: Shardlow’s Good Night Animal World is a bedtime story that use different animal – based yoga poses to help children wind-down and relax. Each pose is accompanied by both a picture of the animal, and a picture of a child doing the corresponding pose. Animals included are: sloth, giraffe, butterfly, and echidna. Similarly to the familiar Good Night, Moon, Good Night Animal World ends each page by saying good night to the specific animal.
Uses: Even though Good Night Animal World is a bedtime book, librarians and teachers can use the book for inspiration on how to incorporate yoga movements into storytimes about animals. Good Night Animal World can also be used in displays. Librarians can also recommend this book to parents and guardians who are seeking bedtime stories for their children.
