There are so many kids books out there, right? Do you really need to know about another one? I’d say “Yes”, and here is why:
Yawning Yoga is very different from the most – it has a different purpose. I would call it an activity book for Good Night Routine. Usually my daughter goes to bed and spends the next 30 minutes to an hour looking throught the books while trying to fall asleep. Sometimes I would walk into the room an hour later just to hear “Mommy I can’t fall asleep”.
How is Yawning Yoga different?
Instead of just reading a book, my daughter becomes a participant of the stories. She is stretching, twisting, bending. While pretending to be a bug, a dog, or a monkey, she is doing simple yoga moves and helping herself to wind down and relax. The best one we both like is spaghetti – She loves being spaghetti!!!!
Needless to say, this book quickly became my daughter’s favorite “Go to Bed” book. But in addition to being a great book, this is an opportunity for me as a parent to spend some time with my munchkin before she goes to sleep. I love seeing my daughter’s face as she lays in bed counting stars (yes, that is in the book too).
- This book is great for setting up new routines to help a child to unwind and settle down
- It provides a perfect solution for a child to switch gears and to start thinking about going to sleep
- Gives you an opportunity to have some together time with you child
