"If you’re looking for an accessible introductory book for a tween or teen who wants to learn more about yoga, Yoga For Your Mind & Body by Rebecca Rissman is a good choice. . . .As a mother, I was pleased to see that the publisher took care to represent girls from a wide range of ethnicities as well as different body types. For a book aimed at young teens, I think it’s vital that girls see models they can relate to. Yoga For Your Mind & Body gets an “A” for promoting fitness and well-being as opposed to unrealistic beauty standards." - Smart Moms, Review District
