While I would not consider this a traditional "storybook" with a beginning, middle and end it is a perfect yoga or SEL (Social Emotional Learning) resource for families or teachers with a desire to introduce their children to "feelings" or "feeling" words. So often big emotions or feellings can be confusing to a little body. The Grateful Giraffe gives parents and children the vocabulary to be able to identify and name the feeling that they may be experiencing in their body. Being able to name an emotion or feeling is such an important part of early-child development and will allow a child, and their parent, to find a bit of calm in the storm of a tantrum or frustrating experience.
As an added bonus there are several different resources in the back of the book for parents or teachers: including a pose guide, feelings list, pose directions & tips for practicing yoga and yogic principals with children.
You can purchase a copy of the book HERE or download a PDF version.
