Stories, songs, and stretches! : creating playful storytimes with yoga and movement

Young children love to move--and that's a great thing! Because in addition to supporting early learning, storytime can provide young children with opportunities to explore physical movement. The centuries-old contemplative movement practice known as yoga is more than just a passing trend; it can offer physical, emotional, and mental benefits to practitioners of all ages, including young children.—ALA Editions
