Kids Yoga Stories is a Boston-based company working to encourage kids to explore yoga in a fun and carefree way, through a series of kids yoga books and other kid-focused yoga resources. Most recently, Kids Yoga Stories celebrated the exciting news that one of their newest kids yoga books, Polly’s Perfect Pet won a Family Choice Award for 2021. For over twenty years, the Family Choice Awards has recognized the best products, services, and resources for families. This award is one of the most coveted, family-friendly consumer awards in the nation.
Kids Yoga Stories, who offer many fun books incorporating yoga into their lessons, recently released Polly’s Perfect Pet, which has already resonated with many readers. Reader Bernadette W. says, “I love sharing the story Polly’s Perfect Pet with my class. Most kids love the idea of a pet, whether they have one or not. The movement images keep the kids engaged with the story, while even encouraging them to create some of their own poses to go along with each pet in the story. This story is great way to connect yoga to an everyday topic kids can relate to on various levels.”
“It’s always wonderful to see our work being appreciated, both by our valued readers and by something as prestigious as the Family Choice Awards,” commented Giselle Shardlow, owner of Kids Yoga Stories and author of Polly’s Perfect Pet. “We look forward to bringing our readers more yoga resources and engaging characters that will get kids moving, learning, and having fun.”
In this pet yoga book, readers join Polly and her mom on their quest to find the perfect pet for their family. They visit a pet fair in the park, where Polly meets all kinds of different animals. She soon discovers how many important trade-offs need to be considered before deciding on a pet.
