Book review for you today

I am highlighting the book "Dream Big Little Pig" By Kristi Yamaguchi. It will spark conversations and be an inspiration to all who read it.
Figure skating superstar Kristi Yamaguchi is an Olympic athlete, artist, wife, mother, and philanthropist. In March 2011, she added children’s picture book author to her accomplishments with the publication of Dream Big, Little Pig! In the book, Poppy the Pig has big dreams—lots of them! But following her dreams isn’t always easy, and whenever Poppy thinks it might be time to give up, her family reminds her to “Dream Big!” While on a “pig’s day out,” she has so much fun ice skating that she doesn’t even notice those around her who think pigs can’t skate…and without even knowing it, she achieves her dream while doing something she loves! In this funny and inspiring tale that’s perfect for family read-alouds, Poppy realizes she can succeed at anything as long as she believes in herself and has fun doing it! Kristi Yamaguchi knows about dreaming big. The motto “Always Dream” serves as Kristi’s personal inspiration, as well as the name of her charitable foundation for children. This philosophy has contributed to Kristi’s success on and off the ice, and she aspires to instill it in the hearts of children. Read on and dream big today!
