Advice from a Tree ~~ anon
go out on a limb
remember your roots
drink plenty of water
be content with your natural beauty
enjoy the view
And I’d like to add…
bask in the sun
don’t mind the clouds
provide shelter for birds, squirrels, and other creatures
go with the winds that are blowing through your life
climb a tree once in a while

Want to peek inside.... I do! :)
About the book:
The book invites the readers to kick off their shoes and strike poses which will bring them peace, happiness and well-being.
Mama Yoga, (sometimes called Mama Yoda or Mama Yogurt) guides them through a movement adventure across the continents to find the true meaning of Namaste. As the kids settle down and calm themselves they are able to find tranquility and go deeper into the mysteries of their inner selves. Through stillness and concentration they learn to make positive choices and in so doing build up their own self-confidence and self-esteem.
The kids learn to interact with kindness and acceptance towards each other and discover that not only their bodies but their minds and spirits are nurtured too.
I liked the whole vibe of the book and recognized right away that the blending of the illustrations plus actual photos of kids doing yoga was a winning combination. The yoga poses are easy to emulate and who doesn't want their child to have harmony within themselves and with their world? The message is positive and an excellent way to show kids that with benevolence and respect to those around them our world can be a much better place to live.
