SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Children and caregivers are invited to join Miss Karen Gilmour for a free Yoga Storytime and Book signing at the Scotch Plains Public Library on Saturday, Jan. 18, at 11:00 a.m.

Gilmour has been drawing, painting, coloring and creating art for as long as she can remember. She is the illustrator of the bestselling Yoga and Mindfulness Practices for Children Card Deck and you can find her murals on the walls of schools, libraries, bedrooms and Imagine, A Center for Coping with Loss. When Karen isn't creating art, she is busy as the director of Alluem Kids, an ever growing yoga program for babies, tots, kids teens, and families at Alluem Yoga in Cranford, NJ.

Now alongside with her friend and mentor, Jennifer Cohen Harper, Gilmour has illustrated a new book. Thank You Body, Thank You Heart: A Gratitude and Self-Compassion Practice for Bedtime is great for children of all ages. It invites children to have a greater self-awareness and self-compassion and includes helpful notes for caregivers.
