Huff and Puff by Claudia Rueda is a fun book to read to preschoolers and young school age children to reinforce the breathing concepts of deep inhales and long, slow, strong exhales.
In this retelling of the 3 Little Pigs story, kids are encouraged to play the part of the wolf. Holes are strategically cut in certain pages so that the reader can huff and puff through them and try to blow the various pigs’ houses down.
The story has a happy ending, since the pigs make a birthday cake for the wolf, complete with candles to extinguish.
I usually read this one with the kids sitting in a circle, reading each page and then walking the book around the circle when we get to the blowing pages so that everyone gets a turn.
This is a good one to read just before any final slow breathing you do before savasana/final relaxation.
