When his daddy comes home from the service struggling with PTSD, a young boy discovers that learning yoga together can be a source of healing. Ever since Daddy returned from overseas, he's been different. At first, Butta Bean thinks it's his fault-that maybe his daddy doesn't love him anymore. But Mama explains that Daddy's mind is hurt from things that happened while he was away. When Mama takes them all to yoga class at their local YMCA, Daddy doesn't want to go at first, and Butta Bean thinks it looks weird. But as Daddy and Butta Bean get better at the yoga poses (Daddy says he's a real boyogi ), Butta Bean starts to see a change in Daddy. He seems more and more like his old self. In a picture book gently tuned to a child's understanding, award-winning author David Barclay Moore and Caldecott Honor recipient Noa Denmon celebrate the transformative power of yoga, therapy, and abiding love for your family.
