Frog, Dog, Flamingo and Dragon are all very upset – Frog has too many chores to do, Dog has writer's block, Flamingo is being bullied at school and Dragon's granddad has just died. Ladybird listens to their worries and comes up with a plan that will help them all – let's learn Ladybird's Remarkable Relaxation!

This beautiful picture book teaches an effective yoga relaxation technique that can be used anywhere and anytime to deal with a problem. Tiny Ladybird flutters softly from big toe to knee to thumb and onwards around the body , showing children how to focus their attention and calm their thoughts. Whether they feel stressed like Frog, or lack confidence like Dog, children will relate to the cast of delightful characters and learn that they too can use relaxation to cope with anxiety, bullying, or grief, and face their worries.

Michael's book begins with a concise and informative section outlining the principles and aims of Ladybird Relaxation. The Guidelines are user-friendly and easy to transfer to the classroom. The characters are beautifully drawn with attention to facial expressions. Children can easily relate to the issues faced by the characters as the Ladybird guides them through the story by demonstrating the relaxation technique. The focus throughout the book is one of self help, and how this principle can be applied to any problem.

I love Michael's honest and direct approach to teaching yoga to children. His experience and dedication to supporting children through yoga are distilled in this lovely nutshell of a book. Ladybird's Remarkable Relaxation is the real deal, yoga nidra simply and entertainingly presented for big and small people alike. A delightful story with a powerful message , supported by a simple practical exercise for children to do for themselves. Perfect!  Tara is the author of Yoga for You and The Easy Yoga Workbook

As an experienced yoga teacher of many years standing , I have read many books on yoga. This new book is a real joy, so refreshing and user friendly. It has wonderful illustrations, is well considered and presented, and deals sensitively with issues such as bullying, prejudice, bereavement and anxiety. The teachers' notes are superb. I enjoyed Frog's Breathtaking Speech but Ladybird is even better. Roll on Book 3!

I have just purchased Ladybird’s Remarkable Relaxation Book here in Australia – how wonderful it is! It is so much more than a book. The script that’s leads through a relaxation and helpful teaching information you always give allows teachers to feel confident in presenting these “remarkable” lessons. Love it!!!
