Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Diana loves yoga and adventures. In the storybook Discovering Yoga With Animals by Arianna Sertoli, readers will discover many animals and their asanas. Perro is Arianna’s dog and he has been named so because he is Spanish. Perro has a puppy. The Perro pose and the puppy pose can be tried out easily. Colorful butterflies are called farfalle in Italian and Francesca loves butterflies. The farfalle pose can be tried out at home by reading the instructions. Crocodiles are scary and the cocodrilo (as it is termed in Spanish) pose is about lying on your belly and trying to open and close the crocodile’s mouth. Frogs are called rana in Italian and Lilia will show you how to jump like a frog from one lily pad to the other. Whether you want to roar like a lion or stretch like a giraffe, this book has some fascinating asanas which are good for the body, mind, and spirit.

The author’s take on the topic of yoga is unique and original and that makes the book fascinating. I like the way the author knits animals, places, and asanas together seamlessly, making this book an educational, informative, fun and interactive read for children. The illustrations make the concept clear, and the asanas can be tried out easily by looking at the pictures. This book is good for young readers and adults as well. The asanas mentioned in the book are easy to practise because of the clarity in description and the illustrations, and will benefit readers of any age group to become healthy in body, mind, and spirit. It is definitely a must-have in all homes and libraries because learning yoga couldn’t be easier than this!
