Newly hatched T-rex Baby Dino wants to explore his world. Taking his cues from the prehistoric landscape around him—a mountain, a pool, a swaying palm, dragonflies, and pterodactyls—he moves through fourteen easy-to-do yoga poses until deciding it’s time for a rest in Relaxation Pose. The spare, rhyming prose will delight young readers and make it easy for them to remember the poses. Parents can join in too, for a healthful family activity. Beautifully illustrated with line drawings and full-color digital collage inspired by the natural world, this delightful book introduces children ages three to seven to the fun, calming effects of yoga.
