In a clear and calming introduction to yoga, serene children demonstrate 11 basic poses, while a lullaby winds throughout: “The sun in the sky is going down/ and the clouds float by./ The stars sparkle brightly/ as the moon rises high,” writes first-time author Gates.” Newcomer Hinder’s acrylic paintings show a brown-skinned girl wearing a polka-dotted outfit as she performs a ladybug pose, while a boy takes on a cat pose. Gentle supplemental text describes the poses (“As I breathe in, as I breathe out, I arch my back like a cat”), which come together in a closing spread to create the “Good Night Yoga Flow.” Ages 4–8.
