Description: Watch Me Do Yoga follows a young girl as she does different yoga poses with the people and things around her, such as her mom, dad, dog, and a tree. The story is told from the young girl’s perspective, and she relates the poses to the world and objects around her, while she describes them. For example: in doing mountain pose with her mom, she stands still, tall and strong. The images reflect the movements described in the text.
Uses: Clennell’s text could be used by teachers and librarians during a young child or preschool program. The book can be read aloud, while the children and leader try each pose. This text would also be useful in a program with parents/guardians and their children, where they can do the poses and movements together.
