About the Art work in Yoga for Little Bears
The Paintings are painted on cotton paper and illustrated in gouache and prismacolor pencils. Each painting was inspired by the author's life, including yoga classes from Suttons beach, and the Redcliffe Botanical gardens.
The line drawings support the early reader to begin the reading process with visual text. Children read the images, copy the poses, and understand how lines form meaning.
The rhythmic poetry on each painting supports the early reader. As this book is designed to be shared between adult and child (as there is text on each page for all ages), children develop reading confidence quickly.
