Rachel’s Day in the Garden Review

Rachel's Day in the Garden
My Book Review 

This delightful little picture book with its beautiful images and easy to follow instructions is the perfect way to get some fun and exercise with our kids especially now when the summer break is on.

The book tells the story of a little girl who is enjoying herself in her garden and doing yoga as well. The simple asana or poses are easy to do. They can be done by both kids as well as their parents. Health and fitness for everyone along with Mother Nature.

I found the story quite straight forward and the day in the garden adds to the yoga along with the sensory experience. Her pet dog Sammy too plays and frolics in the rain.

The pictures are so cute and the yoga instructions easy to follow. I found the list of Kids Yoga Poses at the end to be especially relevant. The pink flowers, the bees, insects, rain and the birds are all beautifully illustrated.

A must pick for young children to teach them fitness with fun.
