“I think the Hello, Bali book is a delightful way to connect geography, movement, and positive parent interactions. My daughter instantly began doing the poses as we read the book for the first time together and asked to find Bali on her globe. Then she sat with her little brother and worked on teaching him Indonesian. It is definitely our favorite Kids Yoga Stories book yet!” ~ Amanda, The Educators’ Spin On It

My Review

Hello, Bali is elegant in its simplicity. If you’ve always wanted to travel to Bali this book gives you a beautiful overview of Balinese culture, language and customs. The story is always paired with appropriate yoga pose and is wonderful for young yoga learners. A teacher who wishes to introduce multiculturalism and different languages also can use this book for the basic Balinese phrases and counting. Another wonderful yoga book for children to add to your library.
