In late December, ABC News announced a fitness trend sweeping the nation: kids yoga. That's old news at Burlington's Evolution Physical Therapy & Yoga, where director Susan Cline Lucey has been instructing classes for infants, toddlers and school-age kids since 2006. Now she and artist Tove Ohlander of AO Glass are hoping to spread the "craze" beyond the studio with Star PosE, a new yoga-instruction book for children. The simple second-person text and colorful illustrations walk young readers through an easy routine of stretches, standing poses and imaginary space travel. "It lends itself to kids wanting to do the positions themselves," says Cline Lucey, noting that the book is the first in a series. Future editions will explore tree pose and sun salutations. Namaste.

"Star Pose" by Tove Ohlander and Susan Cline Lucey. Self-published, 28 pages. $14.95. Info, weloveyogavt.com
