The Happiest Tree

By Asian Reporter

Ruth Jeyaveeran’s illustrations are all quirky and captivating, but her pictures of children doing yoga are both luminous and humorous. . .It’s a strength of The Happiest Tree that there are still challenges in store for our plucky protagonist, who has learned from yoga how to be at peace even in the midst of difficulties with the class play. ‘Best of all, she knew she could do this again, anytime she wanted to.’ Added benefits include a glossary of Indian words at the beginning of the book, and more information about yoga, including a list of yoga books for children, at the end.
