A colorful, inspirational story that will motivate children to aim for the stars!
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 a family read-aloud, Poppy realizes she can succeed at anything as long as she believes in herself and has fun doing it!
If I have to give some boost for my child to dream big, I will reach for this book. This was an easy to read, fun and thought provoking story. Poppy worked hard to be a star and finds an opportunity to make it even bigger. It gives the reader an opportunity to know the importance of having the right people in their life to cheer, support and guide you in the pathway to success. As the story unwinds more, the reader will get to see how a smile can make all the difference in the world. Children can also learn how to make and keep friends by simple and thoughtful gestures.
The star of the story is Poppy, a short and chubby pig who follows her dream till the end. The story also has other animal characters from different parts of the world and that definitely adds interesting elements to each turn.
Kristi Yamaguchi was a skating star herself and was inspired to write this book as she was influenced by kids and always dreamed of writing a book.
We are enjoying this book and this is definitely a keeper for many more years to come. Children can always use a helping of encouragement from this sweet story.
