Book Review: Sofia en una Aventura por la Selva

Sofia en una Aventura Image 1

As a Spanish speaking mother I am constantly looking for books in Spanish to read to my son. I was thrilled when I was granted the opportunity to review the book Sofia en una Aventura por la Selva (Spanish Edition) by Giselle Shardlow

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of reviewing it.  I did not receive monetary compensation for this review. All opinions are my own.

The story is about a girl named Sofia who wins a trip to Costa Rica. She explores the beauty of the jungle, the animals and their habitat all the while conveying a message of conserving the environment; and practicing yoga moves.   The author does an excellent job of telling Sofia's story as she weaves into it yoga poses through out the story. 

As you're reading through the storybook, you will see yoga poses with an illustration that shows you how to do the yoga pose. The yoga poses are simple and easy to do, so simple that children and even adults that have never done a yoga pose can actually do them. What I really liked about this story book is the guide  at the end for parents & teachers with suggestion on how to best utilize the story book. 

The story is short, and with colorful illustrations perfect for children ages 3 to 8 yrs. old. My son loved the story, and had fun practicing some of the yoga moves. I also loved the fact that this storybook was in Spanish. (It is also available in English.) 

The author creates a sense of awareness of our environment, and she does it very well in the story of Sofia visiting the jungle of Costa Rica.
