This month’s focus at Kids Yoga Stories is on Latin America. I’ve been posting volcano pictures, books ideas, travel blogs, recommended guidebooks, and the like on my Kids Yoga Stories Facebook Page. Of course, I had to make a list of cool jungle books – with fond memories of teaching Grade 3s.
Bring the jungle into your home, classroom, studio or with you on your next adventure with these fun, Rainforest Books.
Share your favorite Rainforest Book on our Kids Yoga Stories Facebook Page.
