Picture Books and Fun with Kids Yoga

I was at the SCBWI Conference today and the keynote speaker was children's author Mem Fox.  One of her books she read to the audience was The Magic Hat.
In this book, the townspeople are transformed into giant playful animals. I came up with the idea of kids reading this book and then practicing some yoga poses based on the animals in the book, such as the bear and kangaroo poses.

There are many ways to adapt children's picture books with yoga, all in the spirit of making yoga fun for kids while working on their literacy skills at the same time!
