In this introduction to yoga, preschoolers demonstrate common poses with ease and delight. "We're the Yoga Kids,/ look what we can do!/ Rex can make the downward dog./ Can you do it too?" In a sunlit park, a girl sits on a picnic blanket as her father barbecues: "Winnie is a butterfly,/ can you be one too?" Dempsey's illustrations feature multi-ethnic families and playfully cluttered scenes that speak to the frenzy of everyday life. After a rough day, a mother and daughter cool off by doing yoga in their living room—a cat and baby brother resting on their respective backs as they stretch. In another family's backyard, "Dad and Kit on mats,/ curling downward just like this—/ 'til they look like cats." End pages identify each of the featured yoga poses so readers can practice them on their own. A light, upbeat outing that advocates for yoga as a means to find tranquility amid the chaos. Ages 5–6. (Apr.)
