My First Animal Moves by Darryl Edwards #Review #PictureBook #Giveaway



Today I am delighted to feature this lovely picture book, My First Animal Moves, aimed at the under 10's! I also have a giveaway with the chance to win a signed copy of My First Animal Moves plus an Animal Moves Fitness Deck for juniors (UK Only).

 Nathan loves to play, but he loves his video games more.


Can a trip to Animal Moves land convince him there's more fun outdoors? Best-selling author and speaker Darryl Edwards has created this fun adventure inspired by his passion for encouraging kids to move in an ever-increasing sedentary environment.


Discover the joys of animal moves with your little cubs in this first book of movement. Join Nathan and his cute, but sometimes lazy, dog as they crawl, jump and balance their way through the animal kingdom re-enacting moves designed to emphasise fun. It's all in this exercise for kids book that focuses on family fun boredom busters.

My First Animal Moves is written by professional movement coach and award-winning author Darryl Edwards who is best known for his groundbreaking TED Talk "Why working out isn't working out", viewed over a million times worldwide. My First Animal Moves distils the ideas in his bestselling Animal Moves book and Animal Moves Fitness Decks into a colourful picture book for children.

A Children's Book to Encourage Kids and Their Guardians to Move More, Sit Less and Decrease Screen Time.

This unique story takes a different stance to many popular titles in this arena, with a fun activity that encourages children's active play while aiming to get families moving and reading together. It takes the humour and colour in kids' yoga books such as Breathe Like a Bear by Kira Willey, Yoga Bug by Sarah Jane Hinder, and You Are a Lion by Taeeun Yoo to a whole new energy level with active play for the entire family.

 My Thoughts

This is a really fun book to share with young readers who will respond to the colourful, engaging illustrations and will, I am sure, be unable to resist having a go at some of the movements. There is a wide range of movements to explore and plenty of play opportunities which can come from them.

    There are also some useful tips at the front of the book which are aimed at adults, to enable them to get the most from the book. As it stresses, this book is intended as a starting point and should be adapted according to the child's age. Giving the reader lots of opportunities to learn through movement, it will appeal especially to those who are kinaesthetic learners, I am sure. The story is full of positivity and enthusiasm and will be a great one to share. 


In short: get active!
