Based on the Storyland Yoga DVD, (winner of Parent’s Choice, Mom’s Choice Gold, Dr. Toy’s Best Green Product and Creative Child Magazine “Preferred Choice” awards), “Condor Trek Kids”, is the book version of the fun-filled Storyland Yoga Adventure that teaches kids yoga poses, while it infuses children with eco-conscious messages, physical activity and literacy. The book engages a child’s imagination through storytelling, while they learn yoga poses by becoming part of the story and imitating animals. Yoga is great exercise and helps to calm children giving them greater focus and increased clarity. “Condor Trek Kids” is a physical education, life science and literacy reader to the Common Core Educational Standard.
It’s a book….No, It’s Yoga…No, it’s both!! I love books that pull double-duty and this is great for children as it combines story-time with yoga-time!
This is a cute, short story that doubles as beginner yoga for littles ones in a playful and fun way. This story is about a Condor egg that is not where it belongs. The kids have a job of getting that Condor egg back to it’s home on top of the mountain. This will not be an easy mission as they encounter obstacles along they way that that they have to manuever through. Your children will need act out yoga poses from page-to-page as they work to complete their mission and overcome the obstacles.
I love books that do more than just tell a story and this one get our children moving which is great! Yoga is great for adults and children alike. My kids love story time but sometimes they have a hard time sitting still which makes this book perfect. We can get the blood flowing and stretch and move and let go of all the stress from the day and get relaxed for the evening when we read this book. I also love why this program was created.
