My Review

This was a cute children’s story about a boy wondering what his dad could be doing while he is waiting for him. It is imaginative and fun! I liked the illustations and the demonstrations of the different yoga poses. It’s great to get kids involved in learning about different types of exercise, like yoga!

  1. I don’t have any kids. My cousin’s kids are getting into sports. I am trying to encourage them to do yoga.
