Walk Like a Bear, Stand Like a Tree, Run like the Wind: Cool Yoga, Stretching and Aerobic Activities for Cool Kids
by Carol Bassett —
This fun and informative full-color, 40-page activity guide informs and inspires children ages 6 to 12 (and parents) to get up, get moving and get fit.
The book integrates stretching to prepare for physical activity with yoga to increase flexibility and foster relaxation, and lots of aerobic activities to get young hearts pumping.
The book features Coach Ernie and his adorable dog, Buddy, with a multi-cultural cast of children who encourage readers to make physical activity a part of every day by focusing on what they most enjoy.
A bevy of examples are offered, including bicycling, soccer, basketball, jumping rope, swimming and more to engage children’s imaginations.
Colorful illustrations encourage kids to get moving, whether they play with friends, join Mom and Dad or do something on their own. Includes a workout journal with room for lots of stars when exercises are completed.
