Hallie's mother is taking her along to the yoga studio and while she participates in her yoga class, Hallie is supposed to sit happily in the yoga's day care. Unfortunately, Hallie wants to do yoga, too, and is very unhappy she can't take class with her mommy!

Through the help of Robin, the day care professional, Hallie participates in tasks that are easy for kids to understand like pretending to be a tree and flying like an airplane, but she doesn't understand why she's doing these things-She wants to do yoga. 

Unbeknownst to her, Hallie IS participating in yoga!

My Thoughts:

Since September is National Yoga Month, I find this book to be a very appropriate book to be able to review!

In my opinion, the best part about practicing yoga aside from it's natural and abundant mental, physical, and spiritual benefits is the fact that regardless of who you are-man or woman, thin or overweight, young or old-you can tailor a practice just for you and learn at your and your body's own pace.

That's why I feel introducing yoga to children at a young age can be a tremendous step to their healthy futures, especially if they have teachers that can make it fun and enjoyable like Robin did for Hallie in this book.

I have a sneaking suspicion that, through her well written, easy to read book, Carole P. Roman not only introduced the concept of yoga to children, but made it sound fun with the four introductory poses she details and like something they should try!

I Want To Do Yoga Too can be purchased on Amazon.


Named to Kirkus Reviews' Best of 2012 for her first book, award winning author Carole P. Roman started writing as a dare from one of her sons. Motivated by her love of yoga, Roman has written a book that not only teaches four poses, but shows how easy and accessible yoga can be.

She has just finished the first of six books in a groundbreaking new nonfiction series about culture around the world. "If You Were Me and Lived in..." combines her teaching past with her love of exploration and interest in the world around us.

Writing for children has opened up a whole second act for her. While she is still working in her family business, this has enabled her to share her sense of humor as well as love for history and culture with the audience she adores. Roman lives on Long Island with her husband and near her children.
