My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In our busy world, we know that bed time for our kids (and us) can be challenging at best sometimes. We are caught up in our busy world and often the world of electronics. We don’t get the exercise we should, and we don’t calm down before bedtime. I am so very pleased to tell you of a fantastic children’s book that not only will prepare kids (and parents) for bedtime, but it does it an engaging, calm, and healthy way. Most of us know the benefits of yoga, and yoga poses can be exactly what one needs to slow down and relax. Add some wonderful animals from all over the world, and you have a treat that will both entertain, relax, and prepare for bed! What better way to teach yoga poses than through animals? When I read this book, I felt like getting up and doing all of the poses (except it wasn’t my bedtime). I wish so much this book had been around when my daughter was little, but I highly recommend it to parents of little ones. It is a book that I could potentially see becoming part of a bedtime ritual.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

The Buzz

“This book has been so amazing for my 2.5 year old daughter! The illustrations are adorable! She is always so rambunctious at bedtime and this lets her get out some of that excess energy. She loves the book so much that this has been one we read every night. It helps my daughter fall asleep faster which means more time for mom in the evenings.” ~ 5 Star Review, cwalt047, Amazon

“Another GREAT book!! I used this book for my kids yoga classes for ages 2-5 years old. After a very active yoga class, we read this book and did the yoga poses before the resting portion of the class. My little yogis loved the pictures and saying Good Night to all of the animals one by one. I played a calming song with some animal noises in the background and we were then able to quiet our minds and bodies for the pose of rest. I think this will become a regular pre-resting story for my classes with this age group. My 5 year old son loves to read this book again and again too! Keep the great books coming!” ~ 5 Star Review, Stacy Daniels – Kids Yoga Teacher, Amazon

“What a delightful book to get young children reading and moving in a wind-down, calming story about saying goodnight to the animals of the world. I am a k-12 Reading Certified teacher who blogs about parenting at The Educator’s Spin On It. I am big fan of literacy activities that combine movement and geography in a loving parent / child interaction experience and Good night, Animal World does just that. This book would be a great addition to your book shelf.” ~ 5 Star Review, Amanda at The Educators’ Spin On It, Amazon
