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. Little Ladybird flutters 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. This book will be an excellent resource for teachers and teaching assistants in both mainstream and special needs schools, yoga instructors, and parents looking for a fun and engaging story to teach their children about coping with difficult emotions.

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 Fraser, Director of Yoga Junction and author of Yoga for You and The Easy Yoga Workbook 'Ladybird's Remarkable Relaxation, is a beautiful, multi-layered book that can be enjoyed at a variety of levels with learners both young and old. It is primarily a teaching book which uses yoga to help youngsters deal with difficult issues such as how to cope with workload, bullying and even bereavement. The relaxation techniques are easy to follow and the script appropriate for learners of all ages. The artwork is delightful, filled with vibrant colours and expressive animals. Ladybird's Remarkable Relaxation is designed to be read and enjoyed again and again.' - Shirley Osbourne, special needs teacher 'As an experienced yoga teacher of many years standing, I have purchased and 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 teacher's notes are superb. I enjoyed Frog's Speech but Ladybird is even better. Roll on Book 3!' - Angela Tuck, yoga teacher with a background in education and nursing '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 the facial expressions. Children can easily relate to the issues faced by the characters and 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.' - Rachel Ottery, special needs teacher in the primary sector
