Babar's Yoga for Elephants
by Laurent de Brunhoff

Want an absolutely enchanting way to introduce your children to Yoga? This picture book is it. It's likely you remember Babar the elephant from your own childhood - he's been around since 1931. This particular book in the series reflects author Laurent de Brunhoff's passion for Yoga: life in the elephant town of Celestville has become hectic, just like everywhere else, so it was a revelation when archaeologists discovered that elephants of long ago not only practiced Yoga - they apparently invented it. The practice has now spread all through Celestville. "Yoga helps us all to relax and draw strength from our inner elephant," Babar explains. He gives instructions on practicing Yoga's most popular postures, from Sun Salutations to Shoulderstand. Babar and Celeste have even taken their practice around the world, using various Yoga poses to reflect their surroundings. Included with the book is a poster of Babar practicing Yoga.

Because de Brunhoff is an enthusiastic Yoga practitioner himself, Babar's instructions are actually pretty good. Most kids will want to leap right into doing the postures, even though they don't have a trunk to assist them in poses such as Sitting Forward Bend. You may want to read this along with your child the first time so you can make sure he is doing the poses properly. Remind your youngster that Babar's Yoga for Elephants was intended for elephants interested in Yoga, so he may have to make some human modifications. This is a charming book for Yoga enthusiasts of all ages, but especially for children in grades 2 to 4.
