Review: Rachel’s Day in the Garden by Giselle Shardlow

Rachel's Day in the Garden: A Kids Yoga Spring Colors BookRachel’s Day in the Garden: A Kids Yoga Spring Colors Book by Giselle Shardlow

My toddler and I love this book, in fact, it’s hard to tally which of us has asked to read it more often.

A few of my favorite things (about this book):

– Creative illustrations: There is a brilliant texture and complexity to the illustrations in the book. Newspaper print peaks out behind wallpaper and clouds. And the rich colors and patterns create a wonderful sense of calm throughout the story.

– An active read: My 3 1/2 year old asks for the yoga mat so we can do all the poses while we read the story. He loves to try his own version of the poses too and invents his own names for the new positions.

– Helpful details: Included in extra pages are a full list of the yoga poses used in the story and a Parent-Teacher Guide with tips on how to help a child enjoy yoga safely.

Rachel’s Day in the Garden is a new favorite in our household and I’m sure it will be in any household with young yogi.

Note: I received a free PDF copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
