Author:  Giselle Shardlow

Illustrator:  Emily Gedzyk

Genre: Children

Publication date: April 2014

Description (from Goodreads):

Say good day to the magical island of Bali! Join Anamika, one of the Yoga Kids, as she travels with her family to Bali, Indonesia. Surf like a surfer, dance like a Balinese dancer, and sit like a monkey.

The book includes a list of Kids Yoga Poses, Map of Bali, Basic Indonesian Phrases, and a Parent-Teacher Guide with tips on creating a successful yoga experience. This yoga book for toddlers and preschoolers (ages 2 to 5) is more than a storybook, but it’s also a unique experience for children.


I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

Hello, Bali is full of colorful illustrations. Each one fills the page and should keep the attention of younger children.

This book teaches children’s yoga. For each pose there is a cute picture. At the bottom of the page is a short description of the picture next to the name and picture of the pose.

I really like the references at the end of the book. It has a complete list of the kids’ yoga poses that were in the book, a short English to Indonesian guide, and a parent teacher guide.

This is a great book for parents to read with their children of all ages.
