A Morning with Grandpa
By Jen Gennari, author
What a sweet story! It's an intergenerational story about a young girl and her grandfather who teach each other tai chi and yoga. Mei Mei is too active for the quiet and graceful moves of tai chi, and Gong Gong is too creaky for yoga. Sylvia Liu evokes the natural world with every pose and move. Young children will be up and bending like cranes, dogs, and trees. The helpful back pages explain the history and postures of these two ancient forms of exercise.
