My Daddy Is a Pretzel: Yoga for Parents and Kids
Baron Baptiste. Barefoot Books, $16.99 (48pp) ISBN 978-1-84148-151-7
Kids learn to bend, twist and achieve spiritual balance with new titles that focus on yoga. Renowned yoga instructor Baron Baptiste unfolds My Daddy Is a Pretzel: Yoga for Parents and Kids, illus. by Sophie Fatus. Sitting in a circle, children reveal their parents' jobs, all of which are then related to a yoga pose: ""Anna says her step-dad's a pilot. Sometimes my daddy's an airplane."" Scenes of parent and child on the job alternate with spreads that give step-by-step instructions for the correlating poses (nine in all). Fatus's bright watercolors teem with relevant details and her lithe children make the poses look achievable. .
