Are you looking to keep the little ones active throughout the summer term?
Cloudaloud has recently made new titles and resources available about the importance of moving your body and getting some exercise.
Here are some of our favourites:
Mula and the Fly by Lauren Hoffmeier
Mula and the Fly is a beautifully illustrated picture book series that promotes mindfulness and provides young readers with a soft introduction to yoga. The fun characters and easy yoga poses promote a happy, healthy lifestyle and encourage young readers to relax and unwind. Mula is a very sleepy tiger. But with the help of a mischievous little Fly, Mula learns to wake up, get moving, and make her dreams come true!
Hopping Hot: Hedgehugs by Lucy Tapper and Steve Wilson
This clever story follows Horace and Hattie the Hedgehugs, who are the very best of friends, and enjoy doing everything together. One day they are trying to play their favourite game with their grasshopper friend, but it is too hot to hop! Can they find a way to stay cool and play? Third in a series, this book covers the importance of staying safe while exercising and having fun.
Mr Darcy the Dancing Duck by Alex Field
This delightful book explores themes of pride, family and tolerance and tips its hat to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Mr Darcy dreads the first sign of spring. Flowers blooming means only thing - dancing season - and Mr Darcy simply cannot dance. But can Lizzie convince Mr Darcy to take a turn around the maypole? Join these characters on a journey of growth as they learn new skills and find that they don’t need to be perfect to have fun.
We hope this selection will inspire you and your class to get moving this summer! For more books on “moving your body,” have a look through the Cloudaloud app.
