Frog's breathtaking speech : how children (and frogs) can use the breath to deal with anxiety, anger and tension. - London Singing Dragon 2012 - [47] p. : col. ill. ; 22 x 29 cm.

"Frog is very worried as he has an important speech to make at his school assembly. The speech is about breathing and he doesn't know a thing about it! He asks his friends for help and they teach him all about the lion breath, the crocodile breath, the humming bee breath and the woodchopper breath. Can any of these breathing techniques calm his nerves before the big speech? This charming illustrated picture book teaches children four yoga breathing techniques in a fun and interactive way. The story successfully increases children's awareness of their breath and shows how breathing can be used to deal with anger, anxiety and tension. This book will be a great resource for teachers and teaching assistants in mainstream and special needs schools, children's yoga instructors, as well as parents looking for an engaging story to teach their children about coping with difficult emotions and stressful situations." - PUBLISHERS WEBSITE In his introduction Michael Chissick explains that this book is intended for teachers who may have little of no knowledge of yoga, as well as children’s yoga teachers, and is suitable for all ages The book grew out of the need to increase children’s awareness of their breath and, more importantly, how to apply it in stressful situations.
The explication of the different breathes are simple and marvellously illustrated. “A Helpful Guidance” section at the end of the story gives further instructions and the includes the Sanskrit name of the breath.
Not to be missed.
