Hello, Bali {Review}



Hello, Bali: A Kids Yoga Island Adventure Book is a super cute book about both Bali and Yoga shared together in one amazing little package.  This book, written by Giselle Shardlow, is designed to be used by children ages 2.5-6.  The book is about 50 pages in length.

At the beginning of the book, we meet Tia the Tiger who helps us learn to navigate through the books pages.  Tia introduces us to the book's main character, Anamika, whose family is visiting Bali on vacation.  Anamika is originally from India.


Anamika takes us on an adventurous tour of Bali.  Each page of the book is beautifully illustrated by Emily Gedkyz and each features a particular word which you can find written in blue to stand out from the original text.  These are great for vocabulary skill building.

The words in blue also relate to the Yoga pose shared on the page of the book you are reading.  Each page of the book features a different, easily accomplished pose for children to try out, with the help of their parent of course!  These are a lot of fun.


At the end of the book, there are a few bonus pages.  Anamika helps to teach us to count in Indonesian and also some essential words and phrases in Indonesian, as well.  There's also a review of the Yoga poses that are taught throughout the book and a parent guide for using the book and the poses with your child as a sort of lesson plan.



We really enjoyed Hello, Bali.  The poses were great for my little girl to practice her Yoga poses with me.  We already do Yoga in the home and she knows a few of the basic poses but the book was helpful to suggest some poses that we haven't used before.  Plus the story is adorable!

Hello, Bali is available in paperback for $11.61 from Amazon.com!
