I just finished 30 minutes of yoga.  While my body is swimming in new oxygen, relaxed and invigorated from a hard week of working out, children, homeschooling, and the stresses that life brings – it seems like the perfect time to center myself and complete this review!

I have had the honor of reviewing a few of Giselle Shardlow’s other Kids Yoga Stories Books (Sophia’s Jungle Adventure and The ABC of Australian Animals) and I must say that Goodnight, Animal World stands up to the best of the best!  Here is a book that’s unlike the other two books, in that there isn’t a story (per-se) but a way to use yoga at bedtime, to relax, calm down from a busy day, stretch out and fall asleep.  I know this book is for the youngest ones, but even my 9-year-old loved it!

The book takes you through the world and says goodnight to all kinds of animals.  I love it, because not only is there a potential to learn new yoga poses, but also learn about countries, and new animals that your child hasn’t yet seen.

The Buzz

“This book has been so amazing for my 2.5 year old daughter! The illustrations are adorable! She is always so rambunctious at bedtime and this lets her get out some of that excess energy. She loves the book so much that this has been one we read every night. It helps my daughter fall asleep faster which means more time for mom in the evenings.” ~ 5 Star Review, cwalt047, Amazon

“Another GREAT book!! I used this book for my kids yoga classes for ages 2-5 years old. After a very active yoga class, we read this book and did the yoga poses before the resting portion of the class. My little yogis loved the pictures and saying Good Night to all of the animals one by one. I played a calming song with some animal noises in the background and we were then able to quiet our minds and bodies for the pose of rest. I think this will become a regular pre-resting story for my classes with this age group. My 5 year old son loves to read this book again and again too! Keep the great books coming!” ~ 5 Star Review, Stacy Daniels – Kids Yoga Teacher, Amazon

“What a delightful book to get young children reading and moving in a wind-down, calming story about saying goodnight to the animals of the world. I am a k-12 Reading Certified teacher who blogs about parenting at The Educator’s Spin On It. I am big fan of literacy activities that combine movement and geography in a loving parent / child interaction experience and Good night, Animal World does just that. This book would be a great addition to your book shelf.” ~ 5 Star Review, Amanda at The Educators’ Spin On It, Amazon

  1. I’m so glad you and your kids enjoyed the book Lisa! That Eagle pose is one of the trickiest in the book – your kids did great! I’m so glad you joined us in the Good Night Animal World Blog Tour – Giselle’s books sure are gems. 🙂

  2. Lisa, you are such a wonderful supporter of the Kids Yoga Stories books. I can’t thank you enough for your love and encouragement, and for really *getting* the intention of the yoga books. You’re right, I hope to write yoga stories that include movement, but also life lessons, global education, and a chance for families to bond. Your comments and pictures of your children always warm my heart. Knowing that the books bring joy to your household gives me the courage to keep writing and producing yoga stories. Please give your children a cuddle from me. They are yogi rock stars, and thank you again for joining our book tour. You are a gem. xx

    • Thank you so much for your kind words, Giselle. I appreciate it.

      There is nothing out there like your books, Giselle. The illustrations and the writing. You need to keep producing them. And what a great school curriculum. You need to get them in the schools because the books mean something.

      I hope you have a great weekend!
