My daughter is 3 and loves yoga, she described this as "HAPPY! Happy yoga book!" It's a lovely story and comes beautifully illustrated. I like that it has Mula's yoga flow, which is clear and easy for little ones to follow. I think we will be returning to this book again and again.

This is a fun and bright story about Mula, a tiger who learns yoga and balance from a fly! Funny premise, but the story works. The illustrations are colourful and engaging. The story shows readers the benefits of slowing down and focusing. I loved the yoga moves included at the end, its a nice way to tie the story together and get us up and moving. This is a fun book for introducing yoga to children, and is a good addition to a classroom collection focusing on minfudlness and wellness.

Thank you to NetGalley and Lauren Hoffmeier (author) for a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Mula and the Fly is an adorable story with engaging illustrations that will captivate the young readers. As a kindergarten teacher, I love books that encourage mindfulness and provide strategies to help regulate our bodies and minds. This book does exactly that. I love how the last couple pages include Mula's Flow, where readers can practice and participate with the characters. I will definitely be adding this book to my classroom library when it becomes available.

Mula and the Fly by Lauren Hoffmeier tells the story of a sleepy tiger named Mula who is awakened from a dream by a fly. Mula is initially angered because the fly interrupted Mula’s dreams of how she could move her body while dreaming. The fly teaches Mula proper breathing techniques and then shows her how she can move her body. Mula is able to follow the fly’s instructions and learns to love yoga. The book also shows simple yoga moves for children.
As a classroom teacher, this would be perfect to use in the classroom for a brain break/ movement break. As a special education teacher, I especially enjoyed teaching the tiger how to breathe. I have students who get upset and one of the things we work on is focusing on breathing to help calm down and refocus. This is definitely something that I would add to my classroom library to help with behavior.

What a fun book about breathing and practicing yoga for kids! The tiger gets frustrated and his friend gets him to focus on his breathing to work through his frustrations. The tiger is then able to move in many yoga positions. This book would be good for any youngsters developing their yoga practice.

‘Mula and the Fly’ is a fun, expressive yoga story that fantastically portrays how slowing down, breathing and focusing can help you achieve your goals better!

This story is such a cute way to teach kids yoga and how to calm themselves when struggling with hard emotions. I would definitely incorporate this in my house with my future children. It is such a fun and cute story that children won't even realize that they are doing yoga!

What a fun book! Moreover we need a little stretch in the house during the lock down, aren't we? So Mula was disturbed by a little fly who then urged her to stretch a bit, control her breathing and do some yoga moves. What she found as an annoying process at the beginning, become fun when she can achieved her dreams.

A super cute children's book that focuses on breathing and yoga movement hidden in plain sight by the fun story of Mula and the fly. I read this with my 6 year old daughter and she thought it was really fun and playful. I found the story to be really cute, how all the moves that Mula had done had helped her accomplish something she'd only dreamt about. The illustrations were also wonderful. They were colorful and engaging and just really fun to look at. This was an awesome book to read and to try in the end. This book would make a great addition to children's libraries and a fun opener to learning yoga. I'd easily recommend this to friends and families.

I voluntarily reviewed this after receiving a free copy.
