When I saw this title, I thought about how many little ones want to do yoga just like mommy.  The charming children's book show how they can do yoga too.  The author shows in the book how there are poses in everyday life that mommies can use with their little ones.
When Hallie went with her mommy to yoga class, she couldn't do yoga with her mommy.  She had to stay with Robin, but Robin had an idea of how to get Hallie to do yoga too, using everyday things such standing like a tree or waving your arms like an airplane.  The author did a wonderful job of showing how a child can do things just like mommy, even if she can't go to class with her.  The author shows that with a little imagination, your little one can do yoga just like mommy.  Wonderful illustrations to go with the story.  The book is a good teaching book along with a fun read. 

I would recommend this book to yoga teachers, mommies, babysitters, or anyone who just loves a good children's book.

I was given a complimentary copy of  I WANT TO DO YOGA, TOO. from the author, Carole Roman for my view of the book.  No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 5 FLOWERS.

Her new non fiction series, "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.
