Olympic Gold Medalist, celebrity mom, and Dancing with the Stars Champion Kristi Yamaguchi is coming out with her first picture book, Dream Big Little Pig, in stores March 1st, 2011!
Unlike most other celebrity books, this one is specifically designed to inspire children to reach for the stars and persevere to achieve their dreams.
Doesn’t it look super cute? I’m excited to check it out with the kids.
Here’s the scoop on this new children’s book per the press release:
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 is an Olympic gold medalist and world champion who 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.
