Mary Bea says WhY is for Yoga

Tamara Hogan

Illustrated by Anil Tortop

Mary Bea says WhY is for Yoga, is the second in a series of educational children’s books, designed for five to eight year olds. The series seeks to equip children with fundamental life-skills and concepts to hold them in good stead as they navigate the wondrous and complicated journey of ‘growing up’. The key to each of Mary Bea’s books, is the scope for children to become immersed in the simple joy of ‘story’, while also providing opportunity for Thinking and Talking Time at the end of the book.

Thinking and Talking Time is encouraged for the child, and their parent, teacher or therapist to engage in together, to explore ideas about useful life-skills and lifestyle choices encountered during Mary Bea’s tale. Each story focuses on Mary Bea or one of her favourite friends, and may explore any number of core themes, including healthy eating, emotional literacy, and social skills. At the beginning and the end however, the Mary Bea series is about FUN. May you and yours enjoy the journey.

The first book, Mary Bea and the Strawberries all the Way Home can be purchased here.




Tamara Hogan

Tamara Hogan is privileged to work with children and young people in her every day work. In her spare time she loves to write, and takes great joy in practicing some of the life- skills she explores as themes in her books, including mindfulness, healthful and aware food preparation and eating, body movement, and meditation. She is rather fond of Mary Bea, and hopes Mary Bea is able to teach her children readers, earlier rather then later, some tangible life-tools to support and buoy their journey into balanced, life-participating adults.
