Book Description:

In When Mama Grows with Me, a mama and her son create their own garden, starting with just a few small seeds and ending with a beautiful display of flowers. They observe how pollinators help the earth stay healthy, learn how to care for plants, and meet other critters that live in their garden, all while playfully shaping their bodies into yoga poses inspired by nature. Not only do Mama and her son learn valuable lessons about their garden, but along the way, they also learn to prac
tice patience.

By pairing lessons with movement, Rebecca Wheeler helps young readers make connections between the natural world and their own emotional experiences. Learn the value of patience and practice some fun yoga poses in this beautifully illustrated children’s book.

Includes a step-by-step guide to each yoga pose!

Review By LAWonder10:

I highly recommend When Mama Grows With Me to all parents and reading institutions.

This is a wonderful children’s book that addresses topics such as nature, Yoga exercises, and planting gardens.

The very beautifully illustrated book by Katherine Jordon clearly illustrates the beauties of each topic, plus a clear image of each yoga exercise that accompanies each literary step. This enables the children to exercise along with the story without them even being aware that they are exercising!

At the end of the book, it compiles each exercise performed, very clearly.

I offer a Five Stars rating.

This book was gifted me with no pressure to post a positive review. This is my honest review.

Meet The Author:

Rebecca Wenrich Wheeler was raised in West Point, a small town in the Tidewater region of Virginia. From the moment she submitted her first short story to a young author’s contest in second grade, Rebecca knew she wanted to be a writer. Her love of writing led her to earn a BA in English and an MEd in English education. She spent several years as a high school teacher, during which she also developed a passion for mental health advocacy. Rebecca completed an MA in professional counseling and now works in school-based mental health and as a college adjunct psychology instructor.

Rebecca also teaches yoga for the young and the young at heart, and she likes to infuse yoga and breathwork in her counseling practice wherever she can. She believes the most valuable use of her time is teaching youth how to love and care for each other and the world around them. Her stories share this focus on positive relationships and a love of nature. Rebecca now lives in Durham, North Carolina, with her husband, two children, and two spoiled Siamese cats.

When Mama Grows with Me is Rebecca’s third book. Her first picture book in the yoga series, When Daddy Shows Me the Sky released November 2021, and her first YA novel, Whispering Through Water, released January 2023.
