CHLOE THE YOGI iTunes

Chloe the Yogi: The Amusement Park is the first edition of a five book series of electronic yoga adventure books that mirror the experience of a children’s yoga class. The story featuring Chloe the Yogi is an engaging vehicle for learning yoga poses and reinforcing the emotional support that children get through stretching, breathing, and role playing. Designed for the iPad, the Chloe the Yogi E-Book series was created as an answer to parents’ desire to see and experience what their children are learning in the increasingly popular yoga classes offered for children. It is the first book designed specifically to be enjoyed through electronic devices where both the child and the parent can benefit from seeing the movement in and out of the pose. The Chloe the Yogi E-book series is tailored toward children ages 3-7 and their parents.

Always a colorful feast for the senses, the 2013 African American Day Parade also brought out the stars of the current New York political scene. A convertible ferrying Grand Marshals Congressman Charles Rangel and former Mayor David Dinkins led the charge up Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard, followed by former Controller and perhaps-Mayoral runoff candidate Bill Thompson.

RANGAL AND DINKINS

BILL THOMPSON

Bronx Borough President and Independent Mayoral Candidate Adolfo Carrion marched closely behind.  Council member and Public Advocate candidate Letitia James was also there waving to the crowds, as was Manhattan Borough President and Democratic Controller hopeful Scott Stringer.

LETITIA JAMES

Toward the end, current Public Advocate and Democratic Mayoral primary winner –who in past parades walked toward the front– was this time riding large on a float with his wife and a live band.

BILL DE BLASIO

Of course it’s not all about the politics, it’s also about the people.
