When Daddy Shows Me the Sky
by Rebecca Wenrich Wheeler
In When Daddy Shows Me the Sky, a father and daughter spend their evenings practicing yoga together under the night sky. Through spring, summer, fall, and winter, they learn the names of the constellations and model their yoga poses after the stars' unique shapes.
Brought to life with bright and bold illustrations, this simple father-daughter story combines yoga and astronomy to help children see the wonder in the world around them-and within themselves. Read along with your child to learn mindfulness, astronomy, and yoga together!
My son is really into astronomy so he loved this book. He had fun looking at all the different constellations, especially since he already knew some of them. Of course we had to take breaks in the middle of reading so that he could try some of the yoga poses. If you like yoga and star gazing, this is the perfect book for you and your children. The illustrations are great at easily showing you the constellation shapes. You can even take the book outside with you so your child can compare the illustrations to the real thing. We were able to see cassiopeia pretty clearly last night. The back of the book has a section with all of the poses for yoga that you can try with your kids.
