Om Child: I Am Happy; Chakras, Colors, and Feelings

HarperFestival. Aug. 2021. 18p. Board $8.99. ISBN 9780063068391.
PreS-K–Lapsitters will see that each chakra is located with a flower on the cross-legged body of a child on one page while the facing page shows the same child exhibiting the associated feeling. The red Root Chakra at the bottom of his back makes Om Child feel safe and secure. The orange Sacral Chakra just below her bellybutton makes another Om Child feel joyful and creative. A diverse group of round-eyed, contented children populate the densely colorful and appealing illustrations.
VERDICT With so many young children learning yoga to stay centered and calm, there is certainly room for this very basic introduction to chakras, their colors, and some associated feelings.
