Join us for a fun & free picture book reading with author Rebecca Wenrich Wheeler of When Daddy Shows Me The Sky.
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. Includes a step-by-step guide to each yoga pose.
