"In a companion title to Good Night Yoga and Good Morning Yoga, pairs of peaceful, bright-eyed children from different ethnic backgrounds collaborate on yoga poses, in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings. In one scene, two sets of kids are "face to face/ and toes to toes" on a sandy beach. At a zoo, children sit back-to-back, mimicking a lizard "basking in the sun," as two other children perform a yoga imitation of a pink, sushi-eating octopus in a tank: "One small turn and we're an octopus/ swimming silently so as not to cause alarm./ We move slowly underneath the water, / arm after arm after arm." Hinder's cozy, cartoony pictures clearly demonstrate each yoga pose, while offering a celebration of teamwork and cooperation." --Publishers Weekly"Teachers and trained yogis will welcome the return of the diverse cast from Good Morning Yoga (2016) and Good Night Yoga (2015) to introduce playful partner yoga." --Kirkus Reviews"Don't let the playfulness of the illustrations and the simplicity of the narrative mislead you. This is serious yoga instruction, perfectly formatted for a very young audience." --Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight
