Song of the Golden Hare

A boy and his family have a special relationship with the hares and try to rescue the hares’ queen from a hunter with two hounds.

This is a beautifully-illustrated book about a boy who rescues hares orphaned due to hunting. The story also touches on the emotions of leaving home and the dangers of going out alone. The “golden” hare refers to the queen of the pack, who is replaced by a new queen every so often.

The Happiest Tree: a Yoga Story

Embarrassed by her clumsiness, eight-year-old Meena, an Asian Indian American girl, is reluctant to appear in the school play until she gains self-confidence by practicing yoga.

Have you ever been afraid?  Have you ever dreaded something that you couldn’t avoid?  Meena is a girl that is dreading the school play because she is a “tree” that can’t stay still…. until, she discovers a yoga class that teaches her that slowly, slowly breathing in and out can help to calm her mind and then her body relaxes and quiets also.  Check out the yoga poses in The Happiest Tree: A Yoga Story.  Which is your favorite pose—the Tree, the Frog, the Lotus, the Cat or the Cobra?  Happy posing!
