On the one hoof, others tease him.
“Sam is slow.”

On the other hoof, they don’t really know him.
Sam’s a secret yogi.”


Jenna Hammond writes popular children's picture books. Like Sam, she’s also a yogi. Before parenthood, she led family yoga classes on weekends with a weekday desk job as editor-in-chief. Writing about a girl with special needs who walks because of yoga motivated Jenna’s children’s yoga certification. She holds a master’s degree in journalism from New York University and a bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in French from the University of Michigan. Find her in NJ, on the beaches of Montauk, or the occasional barnyard on family travels.
